Episode 76 - Jordan de Souza

September 5, 2021


Yet another conductor who spoke passionately, honestly, and openly about what we do and how we do it!

Jordan de Souza and I discussed so many topics - what seemingly mundane things can "piss people off" in an orchestra, what advice to listen to and ignore, how to say No to a debut with an orchestra for the right reasons, and after hearing his answer, what item will I now not be leaving home without when I travel?!
