Episode 12 – Rodney Eichenberger

September 18, 2015

The incomparable Rod Eichenberger is Josh’s guest in this week’s episode. Rod has led programs at the University of Washington, USC, and Florida State University; for mere mortals, leading just one of those programs would be a major accomplishment. Many of the current top conductors in the American choral scene studied with Rod over the years, and the conversation covers just how far reaching Rod’s influence has been. Josh even studied with him at Florida State University, and they talk about just how goofy Josh was as an undergrad. They also cover a broad range of topics including how to be supportive of colleagues, who not to tick off in your work, and how Rod developed his singular and influential approach to teaching conducting. Listen to this great conversation with a true legend in the choral world.
