Anthony Hermus has such a bubbly character and I really enjoyed chatting with him! It is no surprise to me that he is widely in demand as a conductor.
I discovered that he went to university to study a subject that, at first, seems to have no common link to conducting, I heard how Jac van Steen (Episode 4) changed the direction of his career, and I jealously discover that he has conducted an opera which I am desperate to conduct!
