Choral Music at Spoleto 2011


sp11-WEB-joseph-flummerfelt-headshot-150Conductor and artistic leader of the Spoleto Festival USA Joseph Flummerfelt has been working with the Spoleto festivals both in Charleston and in Italy for many years and knows how special the experience really is.  As previous conductor of the Westminster Choir, he has stepped aside this year to work with director John Pascoe on Carlo Menotti's enrapturing opera The Medium.  While Flummerfelt rarely conducts opera, he has agreed to conduct The Medium owing to his close relationship with Carlo Menotti himself.  He speaks about the thrills that the position of conductor of this opera brings and gives us a taste of what to expect chorally at Spoleto USA this year.
