Friends and colleagues
Why do we travel to sing? To perform in breathtaking venues, to take our ensembles to another level of purpose and collaboration, share our talent with new and appreciative audiences, sing alongside singers of another language and culture, walk the streets some of our most revered composers once walked before us, see the world and look back on our own – or any combination of these reasons and so many more?
It is many times easier for choirs to spend a few of their touring days in a festival setting with other choristers and uniquely meaningful to join with other singers as a combined choir in amongst individual concerts and post festival touring. One of the very appealing features of being a part of a festival is there is no pressure to bring your full choir or to have a well balanced ensemble for touring.
This is why I am pleased to invite you to the 2020 festival Henry Leck and I are leading in Vienna and to announce that I will be leading KI’s 2021 Passion of Italy Festival in Rome.
Austria and Italy both sweep us up in the history of music and Europe. We will sing in spaces designed for vocal ensembles to soar, we will see sights that explain much of the origins of our society and we will have fun – fun that only singers joining in one voice can know!
Let me know if you are interested and contact my friends at KIconcerts for more details. See you in Europe
