The Academic Radio Choir's Pinnacle at Hamburg
The four soloists Kristin Lewis (soprano), Michaela Schuster (mezzo-soprano), Robert Dean Smith (tenor), Dmitry Ivashchenko (bass) replenished the performance due to their special parts and through a very suggestive and meticulous rendering of every detail in the score.
The Academic Radio Choir - which had been trained by Dan Mihai Goia- was invited to take part in the two concerts held in Hamburg on 20th and 21st October. The concerts were based on Verdi's Requiem and they were conducted by Philippe Jordan. The success enjoyed by the Academic Radio Choir has triggered other possible collaborations with the North German Radio Choir (NDR) and with the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra.
