Friedmar Hoppe

Friedmar’s career as a singer started in the Erzgebirge mountains in saxony where he was part of the Carol singers of his home region. It continued with his time at the boys choir “Dresdner Kreuzchor” under the conducters Roderich Kreile and Peter Kopp. This time was characterised by an intensive vocal education. After finishing school he started a male ensemble -vocal_he:arts- with his classmates and his enthusiasm for singing in smaller ensembles grew. During the past years he has already sung at the German national theatre Weimar participating in the Opera choir for the operas Tannhäuser (Wagner) and Otello (Verdi). Besides singing in many different vocal ensemble projects around Weimar e.g. with Gudrun Bär, Christoph Hiller and Dominik Beykirch, he has also been a member of the chamberchoir of “Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt Weimar” under the direction of choral conductor Jürgen Puschbeck.

Since September 2021 he is part of the Octavians as their bass.
