Andy Loor, founder and coach of crush?!, works as a
full-time choir conductor and vocal coach.
An inspiring workshop with Deke Sharon (the „Godfather of contemporary A Cappella“, music director of Pitch Perfect and producer of The Sing-Off) and some of the most talented people in the American contemporary A Cappella scene resulted in Andy’s decision to form an A Cappella group himself.
After his studies in choir conducting (Conservatorium Maastricht), orchestra conducting (Conservatoire de la Ville de Luxembourg) and classical singing (Conservatoire du Nord - Lux.), Andy felt the necessity to create new opportunities for young singers. He first followed his impulse to gather more experience himself in modern singing and coaching, next to his activities as a classical choir conductor. Thus, he participated in several workshops and started his studies of modern singing at the Complete Vocal Institute in Copenhagen.
Currently, he is working as a vocal coach at the Ecole de Musique du Canton de Redange. At the Institut européen de chant choral (Inecc), he teaches traditional choir conducting parallel to his job with his traditional community choirs.
