“After speaking with choral communities in India, Helms realised the country needed choral directors experienced both in classical music and in training choirs. And so, the India Choral Fellowship (ICF) was born. The fellowship seeks to expose people to choral music and bolster existing programmes with teachers and resources. ICF will send three more conductors later this year with the goal of eventually sending more than 100 conductors and trainers to various cities including Mumbai, Chennai, Calcutta, Pune and Bengaluru.”
