When we say hello, we are astonished that such a petite, frail and smiling woman could infuse the choirs with so much energy, power and precision. Ching-Lien Wu, director of the Motet from 2002 to 2012 and choir director of the Grand Théâtre de Genève from 2001 to 2014, marked the choral life of the City of Calvin, where she reigned as mistress for thirteen years.
The many choristers who sang under his clear gesture praise his precision, his incredible vitality, his rigor, his determination and his uncompromising demand. And also the grace of his gestures. The choir director has just been appointed to the Opéra national de Paris where she will take up her duties on April 26 following José Luis Basso, who joins former director Stéphane Lissner.
