David Klement; NMSU Choir

Leora Zeitlin

David Klement is the new director of the NMSU choirs, and the underlying theme he chose for their concerts this year is “Light, life and newness.” He came by the KRWG studios on Dec. 4, 2012, to talk with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin about his plans for the choirs, how he prepares them for a performance, a recently-discovered Magnificat written by a young Mendelssohn, and his own background as a singer and choral conductor.
