After initially enrolling as a Music Education major at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Frankfurt/Main, in 2007 he took up Voice Performance (opera and lied) with Prof. Hedwig Faßbender. Mr. Kohlhepp specializes in song and oratorio performance and has established his reputation as a specialist in the performance of Early Music. He has performed at festivals such as the Corveyer Musikwochen, the Frankfurt
Domkonzerte, at Limburg Cathedral, the Weilburg Schlosskonzerte and the Karlsruhe Handel Festival. Sebastian Kohlhepp is also devoted to performing vocal music in small ensembles.

From 2003 to 2007 he was a member of the Kammerchor Stuttgart directed by Frieder Bernius.
