BTS Episode 16 - Jerry Schwarz (Part One)

JT and Matt speak with Jerry Schwarz, conductor

Behind the Screen is Back!! We are thrilled to be back and speaking with our wonderful guest about auditions and their experiences. In our opening two episodes we talk, with the Conductor Emeritus of the Seattle Symphony, Gerard Schwarz. Jerry has been listening to auditions for decades with a TON of different orchestras and has wonderful insight as to what a conductor might be looking for when they are listening to an audition. This is a great discussion about the other side of the screen. As Jerry said, “Many times it’s not how you play, it’s who’s judging you.” Listen in to his stories and hear his nuggets of wisdom and tune in next time for the conclusion of our conversation with this extraordinary musician and conductor.
