A Conductor has One Foot in Opera, the Other in Broadway

Conductor Braden Toan is leading Tri-Cities Opera's production of Stephen Sondheim's musical thriller 'Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street'. With experience conducting long-running Broadway hits and also uptown at City Opera, he is equally at home with opera and musical theatre.  He talks about his techniques of working with opera singers and the challenges of those works that straddle the opera/Broadway line.  He also talks about his journey from the bassoon section to the podium.https://wskg.org/audio/Bradentoan.mp3 Photo credit: -jre- via Flickr
