Conducting Humperdinck again

Branching out from my usual composition workshops and performances, I’ve been selected to take part in a conducting workshop led by conductor-composers Dr John Traill and Dr Cayenna Ponchione.

By coincidence, I get to conduct Engelbert Humperdinck’s best known work, the Hansel and Gretel Overture, again, after leading the CUHK Student Orchestra in its annual concert in May 2018. The seminar and workshop also include Richard Strauss’ Don Juan.

Time to dust off my old scores!
