Master classes under, among others, Charlotte Lehmann and Dorothee Mields brought her important musical impulses.

Moreover, she works as a soloist together with both the Singakademie Dresden and the Vokalensemble Kassel. Concert tours have taken her to other European countries, to Israel and Palestine, as well as to Taiwan and China. In addtion to ensemble singing and concert singing Maria Stosiek has devoted herself increasingly to contemporary music.
