- EN - DE- FR- IT

The Institute of Classical and Sacred Music at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts welcomes Andrea Bischoff as a new oboe major lecturer from the 2024/25 academic year.

Andrea Bischoff completed her teaching and orchestral diploma with Louise Pellerin in Zurich and then obtained her concert and soloist diploma with distinction in Heinz Holliger’s class at the University of Music in Freiburg im Breisgau. She has been solo oboist with the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra since 1997 and is frequently engaged as a guest solo oboist (e.g. Camerata Salzburg, Bern Symphony Orchestra, Camerata Zurich, Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne, Philharmonia Zurich). She is also in demand as a chamber musician, including as a member of the Heinz Holliger Oboe Trio. Solo appearances with the St. Gallen Chamber Ensemble, the Zug City Orchestra, the Lucerne City Orchestra, La banda ANTIX, the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra, the Basel New Orchestra and the Zug Sinfonietta round off her artistic activities. She performs on period instruments with the Ensemble Corund and many other chamber music and orchestral formations. Her many years as a section leader with the Central Switzerland Youth Symphony Orchestra (ZJSO) and with "Auftakt", the ZJSO’s project for young musicians, also document her heartfelt commitment to young artists.

We warmly welcome Andrea Bischoff to the Lucerne School of Music and look forward to working with her!
