more on Maestro

The Guardian has another report on Maestro as it moves towards the finals.

Interesting point about Goldie--I've often thought of conducting as an extreme case of multi-tasking!

Effortlessly proving the point is Goldie, who, excepting an awkward altercation with Mozart last week, has cruised up through the ranks of Maestro. Hardly surprising. He is a music producer and DJ. He juggles rhythms for a living. And he does it live, interweaving tunes seamlessly to work a club crowd into a frenzy. He is already a conductor, which is why he will probably win the competition.

Sorry it's been awhile!

Since July, I've take on a huge administrative load with Pro Coro Canada, where I've been Artistic Director for nine years (about to begin my 10th season). This has taken a lot of time and, of course, I'm also getting ready for the beginning of the season, so blog posts might be a bit infrequent for awhile. I've got ideas, but my writing time seems to be spent writing email memos!
