Jan Börner began his musical formation already at the age of nine when he joined the Boys' Choir in his home town Solothurn. When he was eleven he performed for the first time as boy soprano.

Jan Börner was a private student by Richard Levitt before completing his musical degree under Professor Ulrich Messthaler at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and graduating with the diploma in Early Music. He was also taught by Andreas Scholl and Margreet Honig.

As a soloist, Jan Börner focuses on music from the renaissance and the baroque period, as well as being a member of various vocal ensembles. Amongst others these are the Ricercar Consort (Philippe Pierlot, Belgium) and the vocal ensemble of the J. S. Bach Foundation of St. Gallen under Rudolf Lutz, with which he performs regularly, also as soloist.

He has been working closely together with the ensemble Il Profondo already for a few years. With the ensemble, several concerts have been realized, and a first record with German cantatas of the 17th century was released in May 2015 at the label resonando. It has received positive critis throughout the media and has been nominated for the Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik.

Up to now his more extraordinary performances include concert tours with the Ricercar Consort through Belgium and France, taking part in Bach's St. Matthew Passion in the Philharmonie in Berlin or as Handel's Solomon in the Geneva Victoria Hall. His engagements have also led him to Norway and Brazil.

Jan Börner has been awarded with the founding prize of the Migros Kulturprozent, one of the Canton of Solothurn and several other prizes of his region.
