Sebastian’s successor is announced - please welcome Stefan Kahle!

Stefan Kahle

Following a busy season with concerts in Belgium, France, Austria, throughout Germany and three US tours, Sebastian will sing his final concert with Calmus in August and will leave after being the countertenor in the group since its first days 19 years ago. While we are obviously sad to say goodbye to Sebastian, we are also very happy to announce that Stefan Kahle will be the new countertenor of Calmus! After an intense audition process, Stefan completely convinced us all with his stunning voice and engaging personality, and we’re really looking forward to the next chapter for Calmus starting in September 2019, celebrating our 20thAnniversary season!

Stefan Kahle was born in 1992 and, like Sebastian and Ludwig, he has his musical roots in the St. Thomas Boys Choir, where he was a member from 2003 until 2011. After his time as a chorister, Stefan moved to Basel (Switzerland) to study vocal performance with Prof. Gerd Türk at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. For several years, he has been performing regularly as a soloist and ensemble singer in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, and now it is our pleasure to welcome him as a member of Calmus starting next season.
