Anton Holmer has in a short time established himself as one of Sweden’s most dedicated and promising young conductors. Since his professional debut with the Jönköping Sinfonietta in 2018 he has received invitations from many Swedish orchestras including the Swedish Chamber Orchestra and the Gävle Symphony orchestra.
Anton has received several scholarships from the Royal Swedish Academy of Music and he has taken part in masterclasses with Bernard Haitink and Jorma Panula.
Pursuing his interest in historically informed performance practice, he founded his own orchestra “The Swedish Symphony” in 2020, playing classical and early romantic music on period instruments.
Anton studied at the State University of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart, the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Lyon and the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. He is also a trained organist and holds a master’s degree in organ performance.
He is a keen craftsman and makes his own conducting batons.
