Gregor Meyer

Gregor Meyer studied choral conducting and church music in Leipzig under, among others, Arvid Gast, Roland Börger, Martin Schmeding, David Timm, and Morten Schuldt-Jensen. As a student he has already worked as a choral director with ensembles of different sizes and specialities. In the autumn of 1999, for example, he founded the Vocalconsort Leipzig and established the soloist ensembles Concerto Sacro and Opella Musica. In addition, Gregor Meyer was awarded a scholarship by the Friends of the Leipzig Academy of Music and Theater.

As the conductor of the Gewandhaus Choir, he works with internationally renowned directors like Riccardo Chailly, Lothar Zagrosek, Herbert Blomstedt, Trevor Pinnock, Dennis Russel Davis, and Christopher Hogwood, as well as with different orchestras, for example the Mendelssohn Orchestra Leipzig, the camerata lipsiensis, or the Merseburg Court Music.

For some time, Gregor Meyer has also been passing his experience as a choir conductor to music students. During the winter semester of 2006/07 Gregor Meyer conducted the Choir of the Leipzig Academy of Music and held a tutorship in choral conducting. Since early 2010, he has also been teaching choir conducting at the Evangelical Academy of Church Music in Halle.

Besides his work as a choral conductor, Gregor Meyer also proofs his musical versatility as an arranger (for the Calmus-Ensemble and ensemble amarcord, among others).

His comprehensive musical activities have brought him, among others, to the Dresden Kreuzkirche, to Berlin's Komische Oper and Theater, to the Rheingau and Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival as well as abroad. Furthermore, various radio and CD productions are part of his work.
