The German choral conductor, Stephan Doormann, was born into a family of cantors from Northern Germany, and initially studied music education at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Stuttgart. He went on to complete a two-year diploma in choral direction with Professor Anders Eby at the Royal Music Academy in Stockholm. He rounded off his education with workshops and master-classes with Eric Ericson, Dan-Olof Stenlund, Frieder Bernius and Stefan Parkman.
From 2006 to 2014 Stephan Doormann directed the Quilisma Jugendchor Springe. He is director of the Kammerchore TonArt Ulm and coach of the Ensembles Schwesterhochfünf. In 2007, he founded together with some young singers the Kammerchor Hannover, based on the model of Scandinavian chamber choirs, in 2007. In addition to the standard choral works, he focuses his attention on the contemporary repertoire for choir and on compositions of the 20th century.
Stephan Doormann's debut recording of two new cantatas with the Kammerchor Hannover on the CD "Glaubenslieder" was awarded the Echo Klassik in 2010. In the same year, he won 3rd prize at the Deutscher Chorwettbewerb with the Quilisma Jugendchor; as a result, he was appointed a scholar of the Deutscher Musikrat. He was awarded the Musikvermittlungspreis by the Musikland Niedersachsen in 2011. Radio broadcasts, film productions, as well as the composition of new choral works complete the spectrum of his work.
