Brit is Berlin chorus chiefmain
They got used to English chorus directors in Berlin when Simon Halsey was head of the Rundfunkchor, working closely with Simon Rattle and the Philharmonic.

Step up Justin Doyle, chorus conductor at Manchester University and a regular with the BBC Singers.
The traffic goes two ways: a Berlinner (Stefan Bevier) is chorus master of London’s Philharmonia Chorus.
