Episode 13 – Randy Stenson

October 2, 2015

Josh and Randy share a common upbringing: both were slightly wayward students and late comers to choral music. But that’s where the similarities end. Randy talks about the growth and success of the incredible music program that he and his wife Rachel lead at St. Mary’s International School in Tokyo, Japan. In particular, Randy’s High School men’s group the Varsity Ensemble has performed at multiple national and regional ACDA conventions. Josh and Randy talk about a lot of things, including how the Stensons grew the program at St. Mary’s, and Randy responds to a common criticism of his approach to performing. Listen to this fun conversation with a great guy and wonderful conductor and educator.
