Philipp Schmidlin has taken over as artistic director of Audite Nova Zug from 1 May 2023.

Philipp Schmidlin works as a choir director and voice teacher at the Zug Singschule, as well as performing throughout Switzerland as a tenor in several professional ensembles (Ensemble Corund, J.S. Bach-Stiftung St. Gallen, Ensemble Glarean) and as a soloist.

His repertoire with amateur and professional choirs includes works for a cappella choirs, orchestral masses, and choral symphonic and oratorio works.

He organises sing-along concerts with his ensembles, as well as CD and video productions.

In his school years, he founded the ‘Cantalon’ vocal ensemble and was its director for ten years.

The ensemble also sang at the opening of the International Youth Choir Centre in Hanover and at the ‘Stunde der Kirchenmusik Stuttgart’. Invitations to festivals such as the European Youth Choir Festival Basel EYCF and productions with Radio Suisse Romande and Swiss Radio SRF complement Cantalon’s concert activities.
