DANIELA PETRY - doublebass
Daniela Petry thinks you can tell stories with deep tones.

As a classically trained double bass player with a special interest and diverse experience in the field of contemporary music, contemporary improvisation and jazz, she is one of the most genre-wise diverse double bass players of her generation. Moved to North Rhine-Westphalia in 2013, where she founded the “Moment Group” she was granted 2016 the “Presence vor Ort” stipend from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and in 2018 the “Individual Artist Funding” from the “European center for creative economy” – which allowed her to reserve a lot of passion for this collective. After international concerts with many ensembles, e.g. in Mexico, Turkey and Poland, she is now focusing on her own ideas on sound as a composer/performer in modern music theater.
