Philipp ERNST

After working at Schott Musikverlag and the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, Philipp Ernst has been Deputy Managing Director and Artistic Planner of the Munich Chamber Orchestra since autumn 2018. The orchestra is distinguished by its unusual programming, which juxtaposes works from the classical repertoire with contemporary music in an exciting way.

Ernst studied trumpet, instrumental and vocal pedagogy, as well as management of cultural and non-profit institutions. As a member of various national and international youth orchestras, a scholarship holder of the Rhein-Neckar Orchestra Academy and a guest of various professional opera and concert orchestras, he got to know the side of the performing musician before turning to the administrative side.
