Conductor Joseph Young

This is a special release, outside of our interviews with recent Peabody alumni. To engage with the current dramatic changes in our world, LAUNCHPad director Dr. Zane Forshee is interviewing distinguished professionals in our field about the impact of COVID19 on students and artists in the performing arts
In this release, Dr. Forshee speaks with Joseph Young, Peabody’s Ruth Blaustein Rosenberg Artistic Director of Ensembles. and Professor of Conducting. The conversation touches on remaining collaborative when we are all isolated, finding new possibilities by asking what listeners are missing, sharing your process and not just the product, and the silver-lining of time for reflection created by the shutdown.
