Pascal Zurek has been on stage since age 19. After a very musical childhood with education on many instruments, he first studied Music Education and Physics in Rostock (Germany) and Piteå (Sweden), added courses in Audio Engineering and then deepened his passion for Contemporary Music with a Masters Degree in "Neue Musik/Gesang" at the Music University of Stuttgart.
Among his teachers were Prof. Georg Nigl, Prof. Teru Yoshihara and Prof. Angelika Luz. He attended masterclasses with
Michael Volle, Margreet Honig, Andreas Fischer, Sarah-Maria Sun, Johannes Erath, Conny Krawutschke, Yuri Vassiliev and many others. He held a scholarship by the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes and the Haake-Stiftung and was among the fellows of the 2015 SWR Vokalensemble academy.

In 2016, he debuted at the Junge Oper of the Staatsoper Stuttgart in Johannes Harneit's "Alice im Wunderland" (peremiere). During the past years, he was on stage with productions like Puccini's Gianni Schicchi (Betto di Signa), Mozart's Magic Flute (Sarastro), Hoffmann's Undine (Kühleborn), Verdi's Rigoletto (Sparafucile), Kurt Weill's Street Scene (Mr. Olson), Ligeti's Aventures and, in 2018, Verdi's Don Carlos (Le Grand Inquisiteur) while singing in Germany, Austria, Belgium, Sweden, Italy and Hungary. The solo-opera "Eight Songs for a Mad King" by Peter Maxwell Davies is among his favorite pieces.

For the year 2020 he is receiving the scholarship of the Vadstena-Akademi (Sweden) and will be working on the world premiere of "Zebran" by Tebogo Monnakgotla.
