The conductor of the Young Sinfoniker Frankfurt e.V. has been leading the rehearsals and concerts of the orchestra, founded in 1993, since 1996. Bernhard Lingner was born in Reutlingen in 1969. As a student, he played the violin in the Landesjugendorchester Baden-Württemberg. As a violist, he was involved in the Landesjugendorchester Hessen. He completed his studies in music education with a major in violin and a focus on conducting at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Frankfurt am Main. His teachers were Julia Grebe, a violinist in the Buchberger Quartet, Prof. Jiri Starek in conducting, and Wolfgang Schäfer and Georg-Christoph Biller in choral conducting. His particular interest also lies in early music. Therefore, he studied baroque violin in the Historical Performance Practice program with Mary Utiger and Prof. Michael Schneider.
