HPR's 10 Magical Maestros

Apr 17, 2018

For Hawaiʻi Public Radio’s 2018 Spring Fund Drive, listeners were invited to submit the names of their favorite conductors of classical music. The results were compiled and our classical music hosts, Gene Schiller, Judy Anderson, Ian Capps Craig De Silva, Howard Dicus, Louise King Lanzilotti, and John Kalani Zak, wrote and produced brief vignettes on the life and music of the Top Ten.  We’ve listed them here in the order they were revealed on HPR-2 during the ten-day drive.
