As this will be the last issue of On The Road To The Podium for a while, I wanted to make sure everyone knows how much fun it’s been for me to share this process with you, and getting back so many emails of support since it launched. A conductor’s job is to excite the orchestra and the audience, and your answering the call to action for my “Quick Click” and “Spread the Red” campaigns proved that you were right there, eager and ready to help out any way you could.
So, Now We Wait
The CSO has one more candidate to audition, after which time they’ll make their decision (likely sometime in late June or early July). They have a lot to consider when choosing their next music director, especially as they begin preparations for their 100th anniversary season!! How cool will that be?!?!
Now that this concert is in the books, it's time to switch gears and get back to my other projects: leading the 65th Street Klezmorim in this weekend’s performances, picking out and preparing the music for the Circle City Chamber Group’s next two events, advising on the music for two film scores, and coordinating a European tour – the work never stops… and that’s exactly how we stick wavers like it!!
Once again, THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the encouragement and support. It’s an incredible honor to have such great people, from all around the world, in my corner. Fingers crossed and we'll talk again soon.
Until then, enjoy the great weather, and keep the music playing!
