Tobias Rempe is managing director of Ensemble Resonanz that with its unique program, enthusiasm and artistic quality ranks as one of the leading chamber orchestras. Tobias grew up in Nuremberg where he began making music at the age of seven. While studying the violin he became a founding member of Ensemble Resonanz, playing with the orchestra until 2007. In 2008 he ended his career as a violinist and took over the management of the group. His is most recent projects with the Ensemble were the development of the concert series »urban string« in the vivid and young neighbourhood of Hamburg St.Pauli and the opening of the Ensembles own new concert venue »resonanzraum«. He is now looking forward to taking Ensemble Resonanz on new adventures as Ensemble in Residence of the soon to be opened Elbphilharmonie - following the orchestra's ongoing quest to boost its international profile while remaining true to its urban roots - in residence in the Elbphilharmonie and at home in St. Pauli.
