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 28, 2017

David Taylor is a cellist and founder of Yorkshire Young Sinfonia, a youth orchestra program in England. What began with a modest audience of around 200 has grown to 550 within two years.

Here's what you'll learn from my interview with this very ambitious, forward thinking music director:

- What *actually* goes into starting a youth orchestra program (some aspects might surprise you)
- How he "modernized" the symphony to create a totally unique experience for the players (and therefore the audience)
- Why he thinks classical music may no longer have a right to exist...and what that means for you and your career
