Sometimes going home is great

The last few weeks are a real blur, I have been having a great time working with all levels of singers in Manitoba. I’ll talk about the Polycoro debut in a later post, it was one of the best experiences of my life and deserves more space than I can commit just now…

A particular treat for me was working with the choir at Westgate Mennonite Collegiate, where I attended High School. I was really fortunate to have Vic Pankratz as a mentor there, he had a huge influence on my conducting and singing when I was a lad. The kids there have a fantastic way about them and they treat each other very well. They are musical and smart, they picked up really fast and I was very excited to work with them. I can see why he stays there, it is a wonderful environment to be in, it probably doesn’t feel like work that often. I hope I’ll get to go back again sometime soon.
