József Nemes visited us

We got richer with a wonderful experience last weekend :)
At the end of November ImPulzus hosted József Nemes, founder and leader of the Lautitia choir family in Debrecen.
József came with a bunch of new pieces unknown to all of us – even most of the authors were unknown for us. During the morning he told how everything we know today as Lautitia was built up – and in an amazing mood he even practiced with the 35 people gathered around for this occasion.
In the afternoon, he overcame the post-lunch digestion with incredible energy over and over again, we were amazed with how many ideas he was able to keep the team in working status.
It’s great to see how human and human-scale a community of this size can be – where the chorus is built primarily out of enthusiasm, volunteering, and responsibility for one another – and of course with tremendous professionalism.
It is fantastic that the consistent application of our principles leads to results: without being exhaustive, József mentioned among his most important principles that a choir member should never be anxious at a rehearsal, should always get enough help for technical and emotional realization, and that community power is paramount motivation for continuous work.
Dear József, thank you for coming – we hope to see you again soon :)
