MARTINIS WITH MAESTROS -- Classical Music, Shaken AND Stirred
Martinis with Maestros is a video series in which facilitator, Tamara Dworetz, initiates conversations with *maestros about their stories, values and ideas in the hopes of inspiring progress and forming connections across classical music mediums & careers.
*We seek to modernize the term "maestro" to mean ANY distinguished person in a classical music career -- music administrators, composers, music educators, entrepreneurs, historians, theorists, conductors and many more.
