Maestro James Conlon
One of today's most respected conductors, James Conlon has cultivated a vast repertoire, and has worked with the world's most prestigious symphony orchestras and opera houses.
Currently music director of the Ravinia Festival, Los Angeles Opera, and the Cincinnati May Festival, Conlon is also an active and devoted advocate of reviving the lesser-known repertoire of composers affected by the rise of Nazism and the events of World War II.
Jill speaks with the Maestro about his fascinating career and his LA Opera project Recovered Voices: A Lost Generation's Long-Forgotten Masterpieces.
