THE REMOTE PODCAST | Luke Welch: ‘Life As A Black Classical Pianist”

By Michael Zarathus-Cook on September 4, 2020

Welcome to Episode 1 of the REMOTE podcast! Hosted by Michael Zarathus-Cook, this interview series continues with some of your favourite performing artists from Toronto and beyond.

Our first guest is Toronto-based classical pianist Luke Welch, who joins us for a great conversation about his recent article ‘Life As a Black Classical Pianist’.

As part of the on-going conversations about inclusivity in the arts, we discuss some of his experiences of subtle and not-so-subtle racism in the industry.

We also discuss the pros and cons of a recent NYT Op.Ed ‘To Make Orchestras More Diverse, End Blind Auditions’. Pass it on!
