Virtual Director's Exchange - Episode 2 (Ft. Ian Keatley and Sean Boulware)

May 6, 2020 Encore Tours

In the second episode of our Virtual Director's Exchange, Encore's own Jon Linker speaks with Ian Keatley (Director of Music at Southwark Cathedral) and Sean Boulware (Choir Conductor and Encore Tours Ambassador) to discuss how music directors can stay prepared during the lockdown and how the pandemic might affect their ensemble in the long-term.

They also reminisce about their most memorable performances, their favorite venues, and so much more! Come for the insightful conversation, stay for the lovely rendition of Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar On Me."

We may not be able to create music or travel together, but staying connected is particularly important during these trying times. Connecting with musicians across the world reminds us that we're all facing the same obstacles, we're all dealing with the same adversity, and we're all in this together.
