Cascade Conducting

Cascade Conducting 

 “…a challenging business, yet a highly worthwhile and valuable art form.  Preserving one’s own talent, faith to the music, and performance integrity while navigating a successful path forward is imperative. Not only so that great symphonic music can live on be cherished by generations to come, but also so it may function as a relevant and effective platform for peace, expression, and understanding of our world.” 

~Sarah Ioannides
