Sounds Choral Host Gabriel Crouch shares music from the participants in the 2022 Hanover A Capella Week this Sunday (5/1) at 2 pm.

This week's program features music and conversation from the 2022 Hanover A Cappella Week. Host Gabriel Crouch, Director of Choral Activities and Senior Lecturer in Music at Princeton University and Musical Director of Gallicantus, shares music by the ensembles performing in the festival, and also speaks with Wolfram Kössler, the festival's Head of Artistic Planning.

Gabriel Crouch is Director of Choral Activities and Senior Lecturer in Music at Princeton University. He began his musical career as an eight-year-old in the choir of Westminster Abbey, where he performed a solo at the wedding of HRH Prince Andrew and Miss Sarah Ferguson. After completing a choral scholarship at Trinity College, Cambridge, he was offered a place in the renowned a cappella group The King's Singers in 1996. In the next eight years he made a dozen recordings on the BMG label (including a grammy nomination), and gave more than 900 performances in almost every major concert venue in the world.
