Christoffer Nobin began his career as a classical singer and composer (with a double degree from the Malmö Academy of Music) before studying to be an orchestra conductor at the Conservatory of Music in Copenhagen. While still a student, he received a two-year contract with the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra and worked as an assistant to some of the world’s leading conductors (such as Paavo Järvi, Louis Langrée and Pier Giorgio Morandi) in various tours, opera productions, concerts and recordings around the world. He has since established himself as one of the most sought-after conductors of his generation in Scandinavia, where he regularly returns as a guest conductor for orchestras and opera houses. Outside the Nordic countries, Christoffer has worked in Germany, Hungary, Austria, France, England, Japan and the USA. Some of his career highlights include an engagement at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, a dozen productions with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie in Bremen and recording with the London Symphony Orchestra in Abbey Road Studio One.
In addition, Christoffer has composed several operas and musicals, has been employed as music director at Norrlandsoperan, has been chief conductor and artistic director at Östgöta Blåsarsymfoniker in Linköping, and has made CD records and film music with, among others, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Malmö Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Norrköping Symphony Orchestra. Christoffer has also composed and conducted the music for Candy Crush, which has long been the world’s most popular video game. His adaptation of La clemenza di Tito – Mozart’s last opera – has been used at both the Barbican Center in London and the Vienna State Opera.
Christoffer is also a proud member of the think tank Unga that strives for a better music life in Sweden.
