PT29: Orchestrating a Season, with Tony Pierce

What does it take to program a full 53 concert season? Today we sit down with the Colorado Symphony’s Chief Artistic Officer Tony Pierce to discuss how the season is put together, how to secure soloists like Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman, and how they decide on what guest conductors to invite back. Tony also shares some of the CSO’s most exciting concerts coming this season, including the premiere of a new genre!
