Florian Helgath becomes Professor for Choral Conducting in Munich

The Hochschule für Musik und  (HMTM) is appointing Prof. Florian Helgath to a half professorship in choral conducting from 1 April 2024. Florian Helgath will be responsible for students with the career goal of professional choral conducting (Bachelor and Master).

The appointment of Prof. Florian Helgath to the artistic professorship of Choral Conducting (Bachelor/Master) is part of a reorganisation of the Choral Conducting department at HMTM. The artistic training of students in choral conducting, for example for professional concert choirs, will be separated from the artistic training of church music students in future.

Brilliant impression at the Nuremberg Music Festival ION


This choir works at the push of a button! Schönberg's exuberant choral movement "Peace on Earth" succeeds absolutely brilliant.

[...] Even top choirs cannot always convince here. Under Florian Helgath's clear conducting, however, the peculiarities of the structure and harmony are immediately apparent; rarely does one hear the piece so catchy, so naturally flowing - and so intonationally perfect.
