I just returned from a wonderful week at the 2015 Conductors Guild Conductor/Composer Training Workshop at the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music. This summer has been full of opportunities to help me learn to find my voice as a musical leader, which will shape my path, influence and musicality as a conductor. Of course, there was also the inspiring teaching by Maestra Marin Alsop and Maestro James Ross. There is so much more life to being a good musician than they ever teach you in school!
Congratulations to Emily Praetorius, whose new piece I had the pleasure of conducting. Hopefully my future will allow me to opportunity to continue to champion works such as hers.
