Stephan Lutermann

Stephan Luterman was born in Osnabrück and studied Organ, Church Music and Choral Conducting in Salzburg and Cologne. He regularly performs as organist and pianist on renowned festivals and concert series in Europe, North- and South America as well as in Africa.

Various CD-recordings and performances on radio and television reflect his broad repertoire and his questioning attitude towards historical performance practices.

As a conductor for several different choirs, Lutermann inspires audiences in Germany and abroad. He has been honoured with several awards and is often invited as a jury member for competitions.
In 2010 Lutermann initiated the first European Meeting for Children- and Youth Choirs „Sing We And Chant It“. Along the musical encounters Lutermann organized a symposium for choir professionals about tendencies in development of children’s voices. His efforts to encourage young singers also include educational projects with the Goethe-Institute in Ghana and Burkina Faso.

Lutermann works as church musician in St. Matthäus Church in Melle, teaches choir conducting in the University of applied Sciences in Osnabrück and conducts the award-winning choir „Vokalconsort Osnabrück“.

During the last years Stephan Lutermann has been focusing together with the choreographer Lars Scheibner on how to stage choral works. Their interpretations of Johannespassion by J.S. Bach and of Brahms’ German Requiem received a lot of recognition from audiences and critics alike.
