Jessica Cottis is definitely a conductor who has thought long and hard about what conducting is and what conductors do - it was really enjoyable chatting with her!
We discussed the pros and cons of demonstrating when you teach conducting, she gives a unique answer to how she would like to spend her 24 hours free, and I discover what hobby she shares with my own father!
