The Choir of Trinity College Cambridge – the countdown begins

The Pavel Haas Quartet has barely left the country but already at Musica Viva we’re looking forward to our biggest tour of 2010: The Choir of Trinity College Cambridge, conducted by Stephen Layton. The 34 choral scholars, all undergraduates at Trinity College, are equally excited by the prospect of three weeks in Australia. “The Choir only tours once a year,” says Layton, “it is Australia this time and the students have struck gold – and I think they know that!”
