Live and act

Susanna Jacobina Jungert, daughter of the musician Paulus Betz and Elisabeth Betz b. Ochslin (also spelled Bez or Bezin) received musical incentives early on. On August 2, 1778, she married Andreas Jungert , the son of the head administrator, a trained tradesman and organist of the St. Ulrichs Church in Augsburg.

She was a student of the famous musician and composer Johann Gottfried Seyfert and gave numerous concerts in Augsburg between 1770 and 1780. She sang in several world premieres of works by Augsburg composers such as B. Johann Gottfried Seyfert (1731–1772), Johann Michael Demmler (cathedral organist, 1748–1785) and Friedrich Hartmann Graf (1727–1795) played one of the leading roles.

Because of her popularity she was asked to give further concerts in Augsburg. From a relative freedom of action she could z. B. on March 29, 1776 in the hall of the butchers' guild house Giovanni Battista Pergolesi's Stabat mater , or on November 4, 1777 the opera Isola d'Amore by Antonio Sacchini . She sold the tickets herself in her apartment on Schmiedgasse "next to the big Schmidte" (exact place of residence not known).

At the end of 30, Jungert decided to give singing lessons as well, and therefore commissioned several advertising articles in the Augsburg Intelligence = Zettel : three times a week she offered her audience group lessons in German and Italian singing, after (according to the advertising article) several Augsburg women had lessons in this Had requested division. From the years after 1780 until her death in 1799 nothing is known about her public or private life.
