I am delighted to have two great international festival opportunities to offer you in 2020. One is closer to home in Canada which I am leading with Elise Bradley, Artistic Director of the Toronto Children’s Choir. The other is in the birthplace of so much of our music traditions, Austria, where I will be joining Elena Sharkova to lead the Sing Austria festival. VIENNA SATB Festival
One of my favorite places to have toured with my choirs has been Austria. I love the musical heritage and tradition. The scenery, the food, the people, the sounds… so great! So I am pleased to announce KIconcerts' Sing Austria Festival in June 2020 in Vienna with possible extensions to other Central European destinations.
To make this even more exciting, I get to co-conduct with my buddy Elena Sharkova!! If any of you have worked with her, you know she is not only a consummate musician, but a bundle of passion, energy, and love of life!!
We hope you will join us in Austria to create a truly magical experience for your choristers, accompanying travelers and audiences alike.
TORONTO Treble & SATB Festival
Following the success of the 2018 Montreal festival, KIconcerts invited me back to lead the 2020 Toronto Notes of Joy Festival which I will be co-conducting with Elise Bradley.
Notes of Joy is a festival for US and Canadian treble and mixed voice choirs. We will rehearse the two festival choirs separately bringing them together for a stunning finale.
I welcome the opportunity to work with you and your singers in Toronto in July 2020. Let’s take this chance together to create life changing musical moments for your singers.
