You may have heard that last week, Justin Doyle – who will be conducting Bellini’s I Capuleti e i Montecchi at this year’s Festival – has been named Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the RIAS Chamber Choir in Berlin! Huge congratulations to Justin on such a prestigious appointment!
RIAS Chamber Choir was founded in 1948 and is known both as a leading chamber choir in historical performance practice, but also for performing a huge breadth of repertoire, publicising twentieth-century and present-day musical genres and composers. The fact that new works have premiered with the choir and now continue to be performed is testament to the choir’s commitment to new music. The choir is known for its expressive sound and quality.
More info on Justin’s new appointment can be found here.
Justin will be conducting Bellini’s I Capuleti e i Montecchi alongside the careful directorship of Harry Fehr. Performance dates are: 9, 13, 16, 20 and 23 July.
