Herbert Collum (* 18 July 1914 in Leipzig; † 29 April 1982 in Dresden) was a German organist, harpsichordist, composer and conductor. Collum attended a Leipzig elementary school between 1921 and 1929. As early as 1927 he was deputy organist at the St. Matthäikirche Leipzig. From 1932 to 1935 he worked as assistant to Professor Günther Ramin at the Thomaskirche Leipzig.

His main creative phase was the time as Dresden organist at the Dresden Kreuzkirche, which began with his appointment in 1935 and ended with his death in April 1982. Michael-Christfried Winkler was elected as his successor. In 1946 he founded the Collum Choir and the Collum Concerts. On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Johann Sebastian Bach's death, a total of 24 Collum concerts took place between September 1949 and August 1950. Under the direction of Collum, soloists, the Collum Choir and members of the Saxon State Orchestra played music.

The performance took place in Dresden's Martin Luther Church in Neustadt and the Reformed Church, because the Kreuzkirche, which burnt out in 1945, could not yet be used again. During his time as a cross organist Herbert Collum also held various teaching positions. From 1942 to 1945 and again between 1954 and 1956 he was a teacher at the Dresden State Conservatory of Music and subsequently a lecturer for organ at the Dresden Academy of Music until 1958. Between 1949 and 1961, Collum also taught organ at the Kirchenmusikschule Berlin-Spandau. He was appointed professor in 1960.

From 1964 he was a lecturer for harpsichord at the Dresden Musikhochschule. In the same year he was appointed to the jury of the Leipzig International Bach Competition. In 1942 he married the singer and teacher Herta Maria Böhme-Collum. Only one year later Christian Collum emerged from the association of church musicians. Herbert Collum was buried in Reinhardtsgrimma according to his last wish. He often gave concerts on the Silbermann organ of the local church and also recorded a recording in the series "Bach's Organ Works on Silbermann Organs".

The concert tradition he founded is successfully continued under the direction of today's cross organist Holger Gehring. That is why this organ is one of the best known in Saxony. In 1973 Collum received the GDR Art Prize. In Dresden the Herbert-Collum-Straße was later named after him. Read more on Last.fm.
