Since 1998 the Berlin Girls Choir has been directed by the conductor, composer and musical pedagogue Sabine Wüsthoff. Born in Berlin, she successfully completed an education as a sports and gymnastic teacher, before she graduated studying music at the Hannover University of Music, Drama and Media which she finished with a state examination.

In workshops and master courses, she specialized as choir director and orchestra conductor. Besides the Berlin Girls Choir, Sabine Wüsthoff also conducts the Schöneberg chamber orchestra which was founded by her, as well as the vocal ensemble Canto Berlin.

She regularly gives courses for choir directors and conductors with the focus on body action and creativity. In 2003, Sabine Wüsthoff obtained the conductors’ prize of the International Johannes-Brahms-Competition Wernigerode, and in 2008, she won the first prize in a competition of composers of the RIAS Chamber Choir. In 2015, the Berlin choir association assigned the Mendelssohn-Medal to her for outstanding merits for choir music in Berlin.
