Columbus Symphony Search Update

ONE AUDIO PIECE [audio:zuckconductors.mp3] Barbara Zuck of the Columbus Dispatch and I recently had a conversation about the status of the Columbus Symphony music director search. Specifically, we discussed the recent appearances in the Ohio Theater by conductors Alondra de la Parra and Jean-Marie Zeitouni. A shortened version of our talk was broadcast on WOSU radio. Here's the whole conversation...don't forget to visit the Columbus Symphony website, and join me for the CSO's performance of Mahler's Symphony 9 conducted by Gunter Herbig on Saturday, November 28 at 8 pm on WOSU 89-7 FM.
