The art of choral conducting

Choral conducting and choral music are sometimes recognized as something that belongs to the past or something that is part of a church service. Today, however, there is a wide variety of choral styles and interpretations to be heard all over the world – ranging from classical to quite contemporary.

See http://www.s12.si/kultura-umetnost/izven-okvirja/707-the-art-of-choral-conducting.html for a video that was filmed at the 5th International Competition of Young Choral Conductors in Ljubljana, Slovenia in 2009.

Some of the interviewees featured:

Mrs. Anneliese Zeh, Union of European Choral Federations (AGEC)
Mr. Gábor Mózcar, Europa Cantat
Mrs. Sonja Greiner, Europa Cantat

A word of warning: The video is 40 minutes long and may be slow to download.
