Friedemann Keck (Choral Conductor)

Born: Germany

The German choral conductor, Friedemann Keck, began his musical training in piano, organ and singing already during his school days. For 14 years he played organ in Gottesdienst, and for 17 years directed the Church Choir of the Municipality of his home town. After passing the exams, he studied first at Pädagogischen Hochschule Reutlingen (Educational University of Reutlingen). After the first service examination, he continued his studies at Kirchenmusikschule Esslingen (School of Church Music of Esslingen) and changed to the b-examination in Staatliche Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Stuttgart (National University for Music and Performing Art Stuttgart), where he studied school music with emphasis on organ and singing and also musicology.

From 1967 to 1990 Friedemann Keck was Kantor of Württ. From 1973 to 1989 he taught at the Salier-Gymnasium in Waiblingen. From 1989 to 2000 he was a music adviser at the Musikreferent am Oberschulamt Stuttgart (Upper Education Office Stuttgart). Since the winter semester of 2000-2001 he is lecturer in choir director at the Pädagogischen Hochschule Ludwigsburg (Educational University Ludwigsburg). He leads the Collegium Iuvenum Stuttgart since 1990.

In 1997 Friedemann Keck received the donation prize of the Donation of the Württemberg Mortgage Bank for Art and Science, due to his earnings/services for the structuring and boy choir directing of Collegium Iuvenum Stuttgart. In 2002 he received the title of university director of music.
