He worked as a professor of choral singing at the Cologne Musikhochschule. Amongst his pupils were Theodor Schwake and Herbert Eimert. The "August von Othegraven Plakette" named after him is bestowed as a medal and badge in bronze, silver, and gold, for services to the cultural care and promotion of choral singing.
