Episode 18 – Judy Bowers

July 31, 2017

Few loom as large in influence as Dr. Judy Bowers, former professor of Choral Music Education at Florida State University and soon to be Biedenharn Chair in Music at at University of Louisiana Monroe. A humble southerner with impeccable credentials, her influence on the training of choral music educators in the United States is close to unparalleled. Josh talks to her at his old place of work, and with a wicked cold, but the conversation manages to shed some light on Judy’s path, her grounded focus on work and family, and inevitably, what it means to be a woman in this profession. Listen to this fascinating conversation with another huge influence in the choral world.
