Crushing Classical podcast is an ongoing series of provocative interviews with musicians who are pioneering a new path in the classical music genre. I dig into musician's lives who have made an often risky move towards forging a unique path and creating a different kind of music career for themselves. This is particularly challenging in a field where the conventional approach is seeking employment in an orchestra. Join me and learn how others are redefining a thriving classical music career.

From the call to adventure, to the darkest moments of the abyss, to the triumphant return home, students from Melodic Connections use the story archetype of the hero’s journey to tell the stories of prominent musicians in their hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. Musicians are interviewed by students at Melodic Connections, a music therapy studio for individuals with developmental disabilities, who use this podcast to journey with musicians they admire and make connections based on their shared love of music.
