"It was a real pleasure working with Maestro Benichou. I really appreciated his outstanding musicality, and also his desire to serve the music and assist the artists in any way possible.

Maestro Benichou is also what is called a "singers conductor." A conductor that is keenly aware of the needs of the singer and knows how to create an ideal atmosphere to make music.

I really enjoyed working with Maestro Benichou and felt our work together was a real collaborative effort. While working together, I always had the impression that his desires were only to serve the music. It was quite refreshing and I'm looking forward to any future opportunities to work with him again."
