Guest Conductor Tania Miller spoke with Amy Carlson on Sunday, October 14 about the three pieces she will be conducting this weekend: Michael Oesterle’s Home, Elgar’s Cello Concerto, and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5. “Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No 5…. one of my all-time favorite pieces in the world… a piece which, for everyone, captures a true, deep sense of struggle and emotion, and the feeling of vulnerability and love… things that apply to all of us at any time in our lives,” Ms. Miller said.
