Pascal Mayer

Choirmaster

Pascal Mayer draws from his sharp and eclectic musical intuition combining strict formality and expressive lyrical qualities, to explore masterpieces, from Bach's Messe en si to Britten's War Requiem.

Trained at the Fribourg and Zurich Conservatories, he has sung at the EVL, in the RSR Choir and the Stuttgart Kammerchor. He directed the Choeur Faller in Lausanne for twenty years and the Basler Kammerchor for five years at the request of Paul Sacher. Today, he is the director of the Choeur Pro Arte in Lausanne, the Chamber Choir of the University of Fribourg and the Collegium Musicum of Lucern where he also teaches choral direction.

He has regular partnerships in Lausanne with the OCL, the Sinonietta and the Ensemble Baroque du Léman. His brainchild, the Uniphonies-Fribourg Festival launched in 2011, has contributed to promoting his city.

He recently took part in the Barbiere di Siviglia in Avenches, Lobgesang by Mendelssohn, Dixit Dominus by Handel, and Gloria by Poulenc.

At the Opéra de Lausanne: Die Zauberflöte (2015), La Cenerentola (2015), Don Giovanni (2017), La clemenza di Tito (2018).
