The SBSO and Maestro Alastair Willis are excited to announce a new podcast titled "Aha! with Alastair."
In each episode, Maestro Willis will discuss pieces the symphony is slated to perform in upcoming Jack M. Champaigne Masterworks and June H. Edwards concerts.
"When I was younger, several inspiring conductors helped make music come alive for me, music suddenly became more than scales and black and white notes on the page," says Willis, "and since then one of my favorite things to do is return the favor for others, whether in concert, pre-concert talks, or podcasts!"
The title refers to Alastair's "aha" moments about music that he wants to share with listeners
