Anders Eby (Conductor)

Born: February 5, 1949 - Sweden

The Swedish conductor, Anders Eby, studied at the Royal University College of Music in Stockholm during the years 1972-1977, and finished his exam as a churchmusician, with choral conducting under Eric Ericson in 1977, thereafter followed further studies in conducting, mostly orchestral, in Italy, France, and the USA.

Since 1972 he is a church musician with responsability for the choirs in St Johannes church in the centre of Stockholm. Already earlier he had founded the Mikaeli Kammarkör, the ensemble which through the years has been his "own" instrument. Together with Mikaeli Kammarkör he has made numerous tours all over the world, and also made a lot of recordings for radio, television and grammophone. Typical for the working with Mikaeli Kammarkör has been the musical broadness: music in all styles and genres: a cappella, works with orchestra, musical drama and more. Mostly, though, the repertoire has been pointed to the large contemporary a cappella works.

Anders Eby has through the years been regularly sought after as a teacher of choral conducting at different colleges of music, and at special courses on all levels in Sweden as well as abroad, and as a juror at international festivals and competitions. Except all the different tasks as a guest conductor, he has earlier been the artistic director for the Johannes Youth Choir (1977-1987), The Academic Chamber Choir of Uppsala (1974-1983) and Pro Coro Canada (1988-1992).

Since 1994 Anders Eby is the professor of choral conducting and choir singing at the Royal University College of Music (Kungliga Musikhögskolan)in Stockholm. Apart from the over all responsability for the institution for choir, his main task is with the post graduate classes in conducting (a 3 year education program) and the choral conducting diploma class (2 years). In addition to that, he is the leader of the Chamber Choir of the Royal University College of Music (Kungliga Musikhögskolans Kammarkör).
