ATELIER A5: Romantic Sounds: A Journey into the Soul of Romantic Choral Music from Europe
up from 18 years
Jan Schumacher (*1980) is Music director of the Goethe-University in Frankfurt and teaches conducting at the Music Academy in Darmstadt. Until 2016 he was professor for choral conducting at the College of Church Music in Rottenburg.
Having received his degree in School Music and German from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Jan went on to study Conducting with Wolfgang Schäfer at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts. Even as a child and young adult (musical education with the Limburg Cathedral Boyschoir and the State Youth Choir of Rhineland-Palatinate), he was fascinated with the activity of group singing, which has remained the main motivation for his manifold activities to this day.
