With his work today centered in Germany, Henk Galenkamp was born in the Netherlands, where he studied both organ and orchestral conducting. In early years he was organist and appointed director of choral societies. To round out his musical training, Henk Galenkamp participated in international workshops, master classes and conducting competitions. Galenkamp later worked with numerous orchestras in his adopted country, Germany.

In 1992 he was appointed director of music at the cathedral in Bautzen, followed in 1997 by his current appointment as the music director at St. Mary's Lutheran Cathedral Church in the city of Zwickau renowned as the home of Robert Schumann - where Galenkamp also frequently presents solo concerts on the cathedral's four-manual organ. Johann Ludwig Krebs was one of his forerunners. With the semi-professional Cathedral choir of Zwickau for which he is responsible, and accompanied by professional orchestras, Henk Galenkamp offers regular and highly regarded renditions of major works of the standard choral-orchestral repertoire from Bach to Verdi.

On tours as an organ recitalist in Germany, France, England, Italy, Spain and the USA Galenkamp is heard on noted instruments of historic organ builders. His 1986 radio debut was followed by the production of several CDs. In addition to participating as a judge at competitions, he has held teaching appointments in conducting and organ.
