Autumn/Christmas 2023 is stacking up to be an exciting and busy one. I will be starting my work as newly appointed Music Director of Graabrødre Chamber choir with some exiciting concerts lined up already for next year. I'm also very much looking forward to a tour to Glasgow with Copenhagen Concert Choir, where we'll be performing joint concerts with Glasgow Cathedral Choral Society and University of Glasgow Chapel Choir. In December I'll be conducting Laetitia Musica for the first time in Concert as we'll be singing a service of 9 lessons and carols at Grøndal church.In September 2023 I started my first year studying a the
Royal Danish Academy of Music as part of their Advanced post-graduate Diploma class (Solistklasse) in Orchestral conducting. I'm very excited to be receiving tuition from Giordano Bellincampi, Michael Schønvandt, Christian Kluxen and Henrik Van
Christensen in my first year at the RDAM.
