The Choral Connection

The Choral Connection is a series of interviews with well-known musicians with whom Maestro Harold Rosenbaum has collaborated over his 47-year conducting career. These interviews offer valuable and entertaining insights from Thea Musgrave, Robert Spano, Leonard Slatkin, JoAnn Falletta, John Harbison, Osvaldo Golijov, and many others.

Dear friends and music lovers,

"I am privileged to have conversed with many of today’s leading musicians in this wonderful series of interviews we are calling The Choral Connection. Here, you will learn, as I have, a number of particulars—both personal and musical—about the lives of conductors, composers and founders of ensembles and their relationships with legendary musicians long gone. We hope you will enjoy these revelatory and fun-filled discussions."
