Daniel Nesta Curtis sat down with me to discuss conducting and contemporary music. He is a phenomenal musician and conductor and leads the new music ensemble at CMU. He had great insights into what it takes to make it as a conductor and what training a conductor looks like. I hope you enjoy this episode.
