Björn Zimmermann


Björn Zimmermann (* 1981 Gießen) initially studied saxophone at the Robert Schumann Hochschule in Düsseldorf. Since that time he has been working as a saxophonist in the Army Band of Kassel. After completing his studies, he devoted himself increasingly to conducting and in 2017 he began studying wind band conducting in the class of Prof. Hermann Pallhuber at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Mannheim.

Early on conducting determined his path and he had his first conducting experience at the age of 15. Courses attended with well-known conductors such as Piere Kuijpers or Jochen Wehner had a lasting impact. Later he took private lessons with Prof. Thomas Clamor and attended both national and international master classes, for example with Douglas Bostock.

Currently he is the chief conductor of Bläserphilharmonie Nordhessen  and head of the Sinfonisches Blasorchester Höxter, and he also conducts the Musikzug Bottendorf near his home.
