Crushing Classical

Crushing Classical podcast is an ongoing series of provocative interviews with musicians who are pioneering a new path in the classical music genre. I dig into musician's lives who have made an often risky move towards forging a unique path and creating a different kind of music career for themselves. This is particularly challenging in a field where the conventional approach is seeking employment in an orchestra. Join me and learn how others are redefining a thriving classical music career.

Crushing Classical: Redefining A Thriving Music Career

Jun 29, 2018

What you'll hear:

  • How Sarah reverse-engineered the method of figuring out her career possibilities while still in college
  • The notion that you’re selling out by doing covers or other genres? Sarah’s answer to that commonly held belief
  • The excuse she hears often that DOES NOT fly in her book regarding networking… hear what she has to say about that
  • Her career "funk" - even when she was "living the dream" - and what she did to get out of it
  • The secret to great fundraising… hint… it’s old-fashioned and fabulous
