The last in the series of online sessions hosted by Haig Utidjian. Definitely check out the YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=haig+utidjian) where you can access to all previous sessions.

Since music can give us pleasure and comfort even in such circumstances, I have decided to resume our weekly motivational sessions on Repertoire and Interpretation.

Previous sessions are available on Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=haig+utidjian): 

10 March: On Handel’s Alexander’s Feast

17 March: On the Hovhaness Magnificat

24 March: An evening of words and music with Giuseppe Sanfratello

31 March: On Bruckner’s Symphonies

7 April: An evening of words and music with Sigrid Harris

14 April: Roussel’s exquisite masterpiece: Le Marchand de Sable qui passe…

21 April: An evening of words and music with Bernard Cadogan

Members of our Orchestra and of our Chorus,  members from friendly orchestras and choruses - such as that of Cologne University or other members from the European Network of University Orchestras - will be most welcome. I am fortunate in that three charismatic friends and colleagues – the eminent Sicilian musicologist and choral conductor, Dr Giuseppe Sanfratello, the Australian musicologist and virtuoso violinist of Czech heritage, Dr Sigrid Harris, and the Oxford-based poet (and author of sonnets dedicated to Nielsen’s and Bruckner’s symphonies) and advisor to the New Zealand government, Dr Bernard Cadogan, have all kindly agreed to feature as guests.

The presentations will be held in English, for the benefit of Erasmus students and friends who do not speak Czech. I shall be delighted if you can join me for as many of these sessions as possible. Music-loving friends are also welcome. I would ask those wishing to attend to write to us at the address from which I am writing to you, namely info@sboraorchestruk.cz, so that we can make available the zoom link to them.

With my very best wishes,

Haig
