Join Naomi Woo and  Alexander Shelley as they chat on how they prepare for a week of rehearsals and performance with a professional orchestra.

The hours of planning a conductor undertakes to prepare for a performance require every bit as much hard work, skill, acuity, and musical dexterity as that of the most seasoned instrumentalist. Listen in to this edition of Musically Speaking as Alexander Shelley and Canadian conductor Naomi Woo delve into how they plan and prepare a score for rehearsals with a professional orchestra. Noted as a socially engaged artist and educator, Naomi Woo is an established star on the Canadian conducting scene. She is RBC Assistant Conductor of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.
