The Collegium Musicum Weimar, founded in 1994, grew out of the desire of students of school music to perform demanding symphonic works themselves in an orchestra. Prof. Michael Berg was the first conductor to lead the Collegium before it was placed in the hands of the students of the Department of Conducting and Opera Correpetition.

The Collegium was incorporated into the University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar as an official university ensemble at the beginning of the winter semester 2018 and now consists largely of students of music education and musicology. The musical rehearsal work is enriched by students from the Bauhaus University Weimar, the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, the University of Erfurt and the Leipzig Conservatory as well as professional amateur musicians from all over Thuringia.

Artistic director

P. Mauricio Sotelo-Romero was born in San Lorenzo de El Escorial (Spain) and has been studying orchestral conducting in the class of Prof. Nicolás Pasquet and Prof. Ekhart Wycik at the University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar since 2019. Previously, he lived in Berlin, where he received his first conducting training with Alexander Gelovani, as well as lessons in violin, piano and harpsichord. He conducted his first concert at the age of 16 as part of a master class with Finnish conductor Jorma Panula. 

Because of his fondness for opera, he has participated in new productions of operas such as "Tristan und Isolde" and "Lohengrin" in Brussels, Barcelona and Salzburg - learning from conductors such as Christian Thielemann and Josep Pons. In January 2022, he conducted his first own opera performance with "Così fan tutte" at the Landestheater Coburg. He has also gained much experience as a violinist in chamber music and orchestral playing, including as concertmaster of the Youth Ensemble for New Music Berlin in 2017 and 2018.
