Quote of the Day

The best way to become a conductor is to work as a rehearsal pianist, study, and watch other experienced conductors in action. You start to conduct when you become a man. It's not enough to be talented. You need life experience, whether you're conducting a symphony orchestra or an opera production.
--Incoming San Francisco Opera Music Director Nicola Luisotti from an interview with Chloe Veltman in SF Weekly.
