Well I started conducting kind of by accident. I wanted to give myself a special birthday present for my fortieth birthday and I was living in San Francisco at the time and I started attending some of the concerts and then simply dropping hints.
I grew up in a time when being a musician and learning to be a musician was actually very wonderful.
If I can bring joy into the world if I can get people to stop thinking about their pain for a moment or the fact the tomorrow morning they’re going to get up and tell their boss off… then I’ll be successful.
I want to write a book of poetry as well as children’s stories.
