Interview with Heinrich Christiansen

It's mid-February, which means it's already time for another conductor interview! This time I met with Heinrich Christiansen, who is Director of Music at King's Chapel, Boston. The King's Chapel Choir is entirely professional, and has a concert coming up this Sunday afternoon! They put on a concert series every year, and the upcoming concert on Sunday at 5 pm is called "A Night of Snow: a cappella works for choir by Poulenc." I sat down with Heinrich yesterday to talk about the upcoming concert and his own history as a musician. He had some interesting things to say about the differences between Europe and the U.S. in terms of musical training (he was born in Denmark). He also had some interesting things to say about his pet peeves concerning other conductors, which is always one of my favorite parts of any interview! You can listen to my interview with him here.

A transcript of the interview will follow shortly!
