New Lincoln Center Podcasting Featuring Vocal/Choral Music

Thanks to John Neal of A Cappella News for pointing me to this news:

Next Monday, September 17, Lincoln Center launches its first podcast series, Vocal Chords, focusing on the vocal and choral performances that are part of its popular Great Performers concerts this fall.

A special podcast devoted to the choral and opera masterworks and inspiring soloists that highlight the fall Great Performers season. Beginning September 17, a new installment will be issued every two weeks featuring interviews with a wide variety of artists.

Of special interest to choral directors:

Conductor Colin Davis opens the series with two consecutive podcasts featuring his insights on Mozart's Requiem (Monday, September 17) and Haydn's The Creation (Monday, October 1). Both programs are offered in anticipation of his October 17-21 performances with the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in Avery Fisher Hall.

On November 26, countertenor Robin Tyson of the English vocal ensemble The King's Singers discusses their Christmas program of works by Górecki, Palestrina, Reger and others which will take place on December 8 at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola.

You can find the podcast website here. Happy listening!
