    Alexander Armstrong and Harry Christophers on the benefits of singing choral music

    Alexander Armstrong and Harry Christophers on the benefits of singing choral music

    One of the musicians who has been supported by the Genesis Foundation is the conductor Harry Christophers, whose choir The Sixteen he founded in 1977 and which he has built into one of the UK’s finest choirs performing and recording music commissioned by the Genesis Foundation. In this Genesis Foundation podcast, Harry was joined by the actor, broadcaster and singer Alexander Armstrong, and they discovered they were both choristers in their youth. They go on to discuss the benefits and joys of singing choral music, especially from a young age, and the necessity to nurture the next generation of choral singers and composers.

    The Genesis Podcast Series is being produced in the run-up to the Genesis Foundation’s 20th anniversary, and consists of conversations between artists and thought leaders presented by broadcaster James Jolly.
