Thomas Hampson in Heidelberg

Heidelberg in the spring and Thomas Hampson – what a lovely combination! My team and I were really happy to have an outing to beautiful Heidelberg to visit Tom at his Lied Academy as part of the Heidelberger Frühling Festival. He had chosen a fantastic group of young singers and it was very inspiring to watch him work with them and to see how they blossomed and, without exception, sang even better after hearing all his tips and suggestions. It made me wish I had a good voice and could sing some Lieder too!
I loved that the whole event was live streamed – what a gift to the music world! I hope you enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed filming it, and don´t forget to check out the impromptu Heidelberg Blues which happened on the bridge after filming the Horn Challenge…
