I went to a choral workshop today. Got some great hints on how to make primary choirs sound better and sang through lots of fantastic repertoire.
I've gone to four of these in the last 12 months. This one was the best because he didn't dictate what kind of sound we should be going for (i.e. the sound of his choir!) When asked a question along those lines he said...
'The only thing two choral conductors will ever agree on is the incompetence of the third.'
Basically, everyone likes the sound that their own choir makes and thinks everyone else's sucks. Yep. That's my experience!
