I spent a very enjoyable few days in Hannover, visiting the wonderful choral festival, chor.com, and taking part in a choral conducting masterclass with Simon Halsey and the excellent Junges Vokalensemble Hannover, alongside other international conducting students. I am excited by the possibility of directing a future project with the group, the brainchild of a very inspiring and adventurous choral musician, Klaus-Jürgen Etzold.
