EnKor was invited at the Workshop for choir conductors, given by conductor Mrs Naomi Faran from Israel. She gives lectures about choir singing all over the world. EnKor was selected to be the choir for demonstrating and teaching. Mrs Faran's way to work with singers within the section was innovative for EnKor. Mrs Faran said that she sees many choirs in the world and also at many places picks up new ideas. She thought EnKor's way of warming up combined with other exercises was quite inspiring. Since this workshop some ideas of Mrs Faran have been implemented in EnKor's rehearsals.
