Michael Zaugg appointed guest conductor of the National Youth Choir of Canada 2016, with final concert at PODIUM 2016 in Edmonton.
Critics are saying:
Zaugg led a spirited performance of Laudibus in Sanctis by the Latvian composer Uģis Prauliņš. Boldly and rhythmically chordal, it was something that a top-notch chamber choir could really sink its teeth into. Zaugg went straight to the heart of this rich and powerful piece.
This was by far the strongest and most assertive performance of the concert; Pro Coro’s singers demonstrated a strong sense of solidarity and confidence in their ensemble which was communicated quite magnificently through the music itself.
The performances themselves were stunning: ... the best choral singing I have heard in this classical music season.
