As Music Director at University of Cologne most of the concerts I am involved in as performer are part of the Collegium musicum program. I am grateful to have the opportunity to share the stage with so many talented and commited musicians and singers regurlarly. Planning, rehearsing and performing a huge variety of music with them is a great privilege, pleasure and honor. Ocassionally I have also the pleasure to conduct abroad, my own ensembles or groups of colleagues (or combinations), mostly as part of exchange projects.
Additionally, I was artictic director for almost 12 years of the http://www.oratorienchor-bruehl.de and conducted this community choir in many concerts presenting works such as Haydn's Creation, Mendelssohn's Paulus and Elias, Bach's Johannespassion, Verdi's Reqiem and Brahms' Ein Deutsches Requiem.
Additionally there are appearances as a guest with other ensembles like the Kölner Vokalsolisten. In recent years conducting and chorus master duties included projects as part of the Acht Brücken festival, like preparing the Kölner Vokalsolisten for performances of a world premiere by Manfred Trojahn (with ensemble modern) and of Passagio by Luciano Berio (with ensemble intercontemporain) as well as conducting Feldman's Rothko Chapel and Ligeti's vocal works.
