Daniel Roth

Daniel Roth received his first musical education at the conservatory in his home city of Mulhouse (Alsace) and succeeded in playing the organ at an early stage. In 1960 he entered the Conservatoire National Supérieur in Paris and also won numerous awards in international competitions here. At age 20 he made his debut at the Sacré-Coeur Basilica in Paris as assistant to his organ professor Rolande Falcinelli. After 1985 he took up the post as titular organist at the St.-Sulpice Church. From 1974 to 1976 he was a professor at the Catholic University in Washington D. C. He later taught at universities and conservatories in Marseille, Strasbourg and Saarbrücken, and from 1995 to 2007 he taught in Frankfurt/ Main. Since that time he has carved out an international career as a concert organist, holds master classes and works as a jury member at competitions. He has been honoured by the Académie des Beaux-Arts with the Florent-Schmitt Prize as composer of various works for organ, flute and organ, choir and organ as well as for orchestra.

Ronan Chouinard

After studying musical notation and trumpet at the Conservatoire in Rennes, Ronan Chouinard was admitted to the Conservatoire Nationale Supérieur de Musique in Paris, where he earned his Master’s degree and received five awards for musical notation and orchestration. In the course of the Erasmus programme, he studied conduction and organ improvisation at the Detmold University of Music (course of studies in church music). Following this, he enhanced the art of improvisation with Pierre Pincemaille. He is currently teaching in the French Hauts-de-Seine department as a musicology lecturer. Because he is committed to the quality of liturgical music, Ronan Chouinard also composes choral and organ music. He conducts the Cathedral Choir of St.-Sulpice and is titular organist on the Cavaillé-Coll choir organ at St.-Sulpice Church in Paris.

Bernhard Schmidt

Bernhard Schmidt completed his studies of school music and church music as well as choral conducting in Freiburg and Stockholm, amongst others with H.-M. Beuerle, A. Eby and M. Schuldt-Jensen. Since 2010 he is director of the Early Music Ensemble Chapelle de la Vigne in Freiburg and the Canta Nova Saar chamber choir in Saarbrücken. In 2013 he took over leadership of the John Sheppard Ensemble Freiburg, and additionally the vocal ensemble known as Vokalensemble Consonans Zürich in 2015. Since 2013 he heads the Saarland Choral Association training for choral conducting. During the period 2013 – 2017 he was also active here as the association’s choral conductor. In 2017 he was selected as music representative of the Federal State Assembly of the German Choral Association (DCV) in the Presidium, and in 2018 he was elected in the Advisory Board of the Choir of the German Music Council. A teaching assignment at the University of Music Freiburg, workshops, jury activities as well as CD and broadcasting productions round off his artistic work.

Canta Nova Saar

Canta Nova Saar is comprised of 20 – 30 singers who want to realise a high standard of a cappella music. The choir works on a project-oriented basis. The musical priorities are Scandinavian choral literature and tradition as well as contemporary music. After the formation in 2000 by Martin Berger, the choir under the leadership of Bernhard Schmidt (since 2011) very quickly became an established name in the Saarland choral scene, and also made a name for itself far beyond the national borders through concert tours and ambitious projects (exceptional programme ideas, renowned soloists, lighting installations, etc.). For instance, Canta Nova Saar garnered third place in the category “Mixed Chamber Choirs” at the 2018 German Choir Competition in Freiburg. The choir has already been distinguished twice with the Saarland Choir Prize for its innovate concert projects.

John Sheppard Ensemble

The John Sheppard Ensemble Freiburg was established in 1995 by Johannes Tolle, and has been under the leadership of Bernhard Schmidt since January 2013. The approximately 35 singers develop sophisticated vocal music in weekly rehearsals. Most members of the Ensemble are laypersons with several years of singing lessons. In addition to ambitious passion for music and a penchant for unconventional projects, they are endowed with the willingness to consistently develop and coordinate their musical abilities. Regular concert invitations, for example to Stuttgart (“Hour of Church Music” in the Collegiate Church) or France (Les Dominicains Guebwiller), collaborations with festivals (e.g. Stimmen Lörrach), second prize at the regional choir competitions in 2005, 2013 and 2017 as well as participation “with excellent success” at the German Choir Competition in May 2018 in Freiburg document the quality of the Ensemble.
