Christoph Michael Wilhelm Jahn, principal

Member of the Belgrade Philharmonic since 2020.


I am proud to be a member of an exceptional and passionately dedicated ensemble such as the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra, where everyone unconditionally gives their all at every concert.


When I am not performing, I love spending time in nature with my family and riding my bike. I enjoy cooking, and not just German beer!
