Conductor Masterclass with Esa-Pekka Salonen

2012 Grawemeyer Award winner Esa-Pekka Salonen worked with student composers & conductors and the University of Louisville Symphony Orchestra! What a fantastic experience to see all of my colleagues rise to the occasion. My orchestra piece was part of the program.
