Jannik Wolters Conductor
Conductor Jannik Wolters received his first music lessons in his young years.
Although music only played a subordinate role in his family and popular music was predominantly appreciated, at the age of 12 Bach's Christmas Oratorio provided the initial spark. He learned piano, violin, singing and supplemented the instrumental lessons with courses in music theory and ear training.
At the age of 15, his penchant for large forms led him to the Deutsche Oper am Rhein, where he supervised the rehearsal of the Ring des Nibelungen as part of an internship with Axel Kober.
Inspired by his singing activities in various choirs, Jannik Wolters began rehearsing various masses as a musical assistant (including Schubert's German Mass, Rutter's Requiem, C.S.'s Christmas Oratorio).
After Wolters graduated from high school with top marks, he conducted various orchestral formations. In order to cultivate his musical flair for wind instruments, the conductor took over the musical direction of a wind orchestra, with which he played e.g. worked out Wagner's Tannhäuser Overture. Against the background of his European-Romantic repertoire focus a logical step.
Wolters sees constant learning and growth as his life's work. So he took u. Conducting lessons with Prof. Colin Metters and conducted the Berlin Sinfonietta. True to his claim of "modeling of excellence", he studied as part of an ongoing internship (rehearsal visits) with Christian Thielemann (beginning of the Salzburg Easter Festival 2022) e.g. Works by Richard Wagner and Anton Bruckner.
Jannik Wolters was invited to the Lake Como International Conducting Competition 2022 from among 634 entries and conducted the Call for Conductors 2023 in Budapest.
