49: What You Wish You Knew Before Entering the Profession

Hi there! Happy end of July and welcome to the seventh edition of the Conductor’s Podcast Wisdom series, a new series full of shared life experiences and, of course, wisdom! This series is aired on the last Monday of each month, and in each episode, I am going to pose a question to 10 musicians, conductors, or business gurus. So including myself, you will hear all the goodies from a wide variety of people, thus called the wisdom series. Now, without further ado, let’s get started.

This month’s question that I am asking my people is, “What You Wish You Knew Before Entering the Profession”

I asked this question selfishly as I suck (!!!!) at networking in whatever sense. Let’s hear what my guests have to say:

  • Tianyi Lu (Principal Guest Conductor, Stavanger Symphony, episode 34)
  • Ashley Killam and Carrie Blosser (co-founder, Diversify the Stand, episode 20)
  • Margaret Flood (Founder, Frost Young Women Conductor Symposium)
  • JoAnne Harris (film composer and conductor, episode 36)
  • Lidiya Yankovskaya (Music Director, Chicago Opera Theater, episode 41
  • Kiernan Steiner or Dr. Kiki (Decolonization consultant and choral conductor, episode 17)
  • Kristin Roach (opera conductor, Episode 12)
  • Lina Gonzalez Granados (Conducting Fellow, Philadelphia Orchestra and Chicago Symphony Orchestra, episode 38)
  • Alice Farnham (opera conductor, episode 26)
