Biographies

Martin Lehmann

Martin Lehmann has been the 29th Kreuzkantor since fall 2022, making him one of the most renowned positions in Protestant church music. He was a Crucian himself in his childhood and youth and later studied choral and orchestral conducting in Dresden. As assistant to Hans-Christoph Rademann at the Dresden Chamber Choir, he gained important experience during his studies. After working in Leipzig and Wuppertal, he took over the direction of the Windsbach Boys' Choir for ten years in 2012.

Dresdner Kreuzchor

The Dresden Kreuzchor is one of the oldest and most famous boys' choirs in the world. Even after more than 800 years, one of its most important tasks is to sing in the liturgical services of the Kreuzkirche on Dresden's Altmarkt, where it performs in vespers and church services and regularly gives concerts with outstanding works of sacred music. In addition, the Kruzianer, who have been singing under the direction of Martin Lehmann since 2022, regularly go on tours at home and abroad as cultural ambassadors for Dresden.
