About


Conductor Anton Holmer has in short time gained recognition as an emerging and dedicated talent on the swedish scene. After three years of conducting studies he made his professional debut with the Jönköping Sinfonietta in May 2018 and he was immediately re-invited for the season 2019/2020. This season includes among other his debut with the acclaimed Swedish chamber orchestra.

Anton studied Conducting at the at the State University of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart with Prof. Per Borin. Further important influences he gained from Masterclasses with Bernard Haitink, Daniele Gatti and Jorma Panula.

During his studies he worked with many prominent orchestras in southern Germany, among others the Stuttgarter Kammerorchester, the Stuttgarter Philharmoniker and the Württembergische Philharmonie Reutlingen.

He also led the Opera school in Stuttgart in a performance of Verdi’s Rigoletto that was hailed by the press as “a musical stroke of luck”.

Before entirely concentrating on conducting, Anton studied organ, piano and choral conducting at the Royal college of music in Stockholm. To emerge himself into the French culture and repertoire, he spent one year as an exchange student at Conservatoire National Supérieure de Lyon. He also holds a master’s degree in organ performance from the Musikhochschule Stuttgart.

His studies have been generously supported with grants from the Royal Swedish Academy of Music, Anders Sandrews Stiftelse and the Deutsche akademische austauschdienst.

Passionate about craftsmanship he has built his own organ and manufactures his own conducting batons

Anton Holmer currently reside in Stockholm, Sweden.
