For Episode 6 of The Remote Podcast, Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser — the Barrett Principal Education Conductor & Community Ambassador for the Toronto Symphony Orchestra — talks about how the organization intends to make the most of the $3.85 million donation recently announced. In a wide-ranging conversation, we discuss how this donation enables Daniel to help pursue his vision for the TSO’s community outreach; what he makes of his journey thus far as a black, gay conductor in classical music, as well as the gender-disparity on the podium.
If you’d like to learn more about Daniel — he’s got a very interesting story — do checkout his documentary with the CBC titled ‘Disruptor Conductor’. It is streaming now on CBC Gem.
