Max spent a very enjoyable few days in Hannover, visiting the wonderful choral festival,, and taking part in a choral conducting masterclass with Simon Halsey and the excellent Junges Vokalensemble Hannover, alongside other international conducting students. He is excited by the possibility of directing a future project with the group, the brainchild of a very inspiring and adventurous choral musician, Klaus-J├╝rgen Etzold.
