Tomàs Maxe. Baritone and professional singer

Aniol Botines, solo tenor and member of the Palau Chamber Choir. The work that Kurt Widmer proposes makes you free the tensions of the body, helps you to solve the small and great problems of singing and makes you enjoy yourself by doing so. Fears, accumulated over the years, in shrinking movements, vanish and, little by little, a freedom based on trust flows.

From Kurt Widmer I discovered "the color of sound", a fantastic visual and spiritual experience! Thanks, Kurt, for living.
