Florian Lohmann

Florian Lohmann began his musical education as a member of the Hannover Boys Choir. He studied Music and German, Singing and Singing Pedagogy and was a scholar of the Academic Foundation Villigst. For his choral conducting studies he foremost worked with Frank Löhr and Jörg Straube. Further important inspiration he gained from Anne Kohler, Walter Nußbaum, Georg Grün, Paul van Nevel and Frieder Bernius.

Florian Lohmann has been the musical director of Capella St Crucis and Collegium Vocale Hannover. He has been invited to national and international festivals and competitions and to recording and broadcasting productions in a variety of musical fields from historically informed performance to contemporary vocal music. Furthermore, in 2018 he conducted the BundesSchulmusikChor, a choir comprising of music students from all over Germany and was guest conductor with a variety of professional ensemles. Concert tours led him and his choirs through several European countries, Argentina, South Africa and Australia. The Sydney Morning Herald discussed his performance of the Mozart Mass in c-Minor in the Sydney Opera House in April 2019: “Lohmann led with subtlety and stylistic finesse, drawing a magnificently rich choral sound and achieving balance in both the large scale and more intimate numbers“.

Beside his work as a conductor, Florian taught singing at the University of Music, Drama and Media in Hannover and choral conducting at the University of Music in Detmold. In October 2019, he gained a professorship of choral conducting at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts.
