LSO Chorus Director
Halsey is already the Chief Conductor of the Berlin Radio Choir, the Artistic Director of the Berlin Philharmonic's Youth Choral Programme and director of the BBC Proms Youth Choir, as well as being Chorus Director of the CBSO (a post he has held for quite a long time). Which leads one to wonder quite how much time he will have to spend with the London Symphony Chorus and the LSO? This is the problem with choral directors, good ones are rare and too often the post is seen simply as a stepping stone to 'proper' conducting. When you do get a good choral director who is happy to stay doing that, then of course everybody want them. We wish Halsey well in his new appointment and hope that his diary (and family life) stand up to the strain.
