Sara Mohr-Pietsch joins Musarc, one of the UK's most progressive choral ensembles. Based at Cass Art, Architecture and Design, London Metropolitan University, Musarc explores performance and composition in the context of society, architecture and the city. As they look forward to appearing at Do Disturb, a weekend of events taking place in the Palais de Tokyo in Paris in April, Sara catches up with them during a rehearsal to find out more about their creative process. Paul Hillier, who was for many years the principal conductor of the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, reflects on the choral legacy of the Estonian composer Veljo Tormis, who died last month.
