Crushing Classical

Crushing Classical is a series of interviews with classical musicians who are forging unique paths with their talent, creating their own artistic fulfillment and financial comfort, and finding ways to thrive. I celebrate these brave people who are taking routes outside of traditional orchestral or academic employment! As always, I invite you to listen for your own sparks and breadcrumbs, and use these interviews to find the possibilities that exist in your own life.

Welcome back to Season 3 of Crushing Classical!

I'm starting this season out with a highlights episode of some moments that really stood out in my mind in the last 2 years of Crushing Classical. It was hard to narrow it down to just a few - I chose excerpts from several episodes that stood out to me such as:

- Good solid career and LIFE advice

- Great money advice in a nutshell

- Clips from musician founders about their ensemble model and the secret to great fundraising

- The #1 trait or QUALITY that I've seen in musicians I've had on the show that is the REAL reason WHY they've been able to do what they do. Although there are many examples of this in the entire history of this show, I chose two especially "mic-dropping" moments to share on this episode
