More Details:

  • You can say it: “Juraj Valčuha” = YOU-rye val-CHEW-uh.
  • Valčuha is a superstar young Slovak who’s conducting more and more in the States because orchestras fall in love with him.
  • Michael Gast began playing French horn when he was 15, growing up in Tallahassee.
  • In his spare time, Gast loves to scuba dive.
  • There are no scuba divers in Britten’s opera Peter Grimes. This story set in an English seaside village and centers around a disturbed fisherman–Britten’s Four Sea Interludes are the overtures he created for each act.
