Right now, music educators and directors around the world are facing the same challenging experience. It doesn't matter whether you're in Atlanta, Georgia or Vienna, Austria, we're all united in our struggles. While we may not be able to create music or travel together right now, staying connected during this pandemic is critically important. That's why we wanted to connect musicians across the globe and allow them to compare experiences, exchange coping tips, and help them come together to share the universal language of music.
In our first episode of the Virtual Director's Exchange, Encore's Frieda Krantz speaks with Gerald Wirth, President of the world-renowned Vienna Boys Choir, and Suzanne Woodruff, Director of Choral Music and Performing Arts Department Chair at Woodward Academy in College Park, Georgia.
They discuss a number of important topics including:
- How life has changed since the COVID-19 outbreak
- How they have stayed in touch with students and colleagues
- What they miss most about spending them with their ensemble
- What they are doing with their free time
- And much more!
