Hubert von Goisern was born as Hubert Achleitner on 17th November 1952 in Bad Goisern in the Austrian Salzkammergut region. At the age of 5 he told his parents that he wanted to be a conductor. When he was 12 he joined the local brass band and was loaned his first instrument - a trumpet - and received free music lessons. At the age of 16 Hubert was playing first trumpet in the orchestra.
Between 1972 and 1994 traveled and studied music around the world. During this time Hubert studied electroacoustic experimental music at the University of Music in Vienna and made a living as a freelance musician and composer. Other places include, South Africa, the Philippines and Salzburg.
Since then, von Goisern has toured in Austria and Germany, performed a joint concert with Nubian superstar Mohamed Mounir to an audience of 15,000 in Assiut, Egypt (2002) and created "The Alpenliebe Exhibition" featuring a musical journey through the Alps.
