In 1988 he took part (cum laude) at the Masterclasses of the Franz Schubert Institute in Austria.

He has now sung about 30 operatic roles, including Zaccaria in NABUCCO, Leporello in DON GIOVANNI and the four devils in THE TALES OF HOFFMANN. Highlights were performances at the Teatro Municipal in Chile; the Greensboro Opera; the Boston Concert Opera; the International Operafestival Chiemgau in Bavaria, the ISNY Opera, The Maxlrain Castle and the Opera Vaduz in Liechtenstein. Mr. Kamp has appeared in numerous recitals as well as oratorio in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Chile, Italy, Czech Republic and the United States.
Since 2000 he has lived in Munich, Bavaria, where he has appeared with Schumann's Dichterliebe, Verdi's Rigoletto, Mozarts Don Giovanni, Rossini's Aschenputtel and Petite messe solonnelle, Haydn's Schöpfung, a Russian recital at the Tolstoy Library and many masses.
