18-Year-Old Conducts LV Philharmonic

Listen
AIR DATE: February 11, 2011

Alexander Prior has conducted symphonies around the world, including London, St. Petersburg, and Seattle. But here's the kicker: he's only 18. The musical prodigy talks about mastering the baton, his compositions and movie projects, and what it takes to get an orchestra to listen to you when you're the same age as their kids.

Alexander Prior conducts the LV Philharmonic on Saturday, February 12, at 8 p.m. at Artemus Ham Hall.

GUEST
Alexander Prior, conductor
De Ann Letourneau, Concertmaster, LV Philharmonic

    I am a violinist and Knpr supporter and former member of the Philharmonic. Thanks for broadcasting this interview because I missed it when it was aired yesterday, and today I had the change to listen it. Congrats to all the people who work at Knpr, they do an excellent job. All the best.
