World Music Institute has given me the unique opportunity to work with some of the finest artists on the planet, from across a huge array of musical cultures and styles. No two WMI concerts are quite alike, and each comes with its unique set of challenges. But seeing an audience moved by a great performance is a tremendously rewarding experience. WMI has built a truly sophisticated audience of listeners who really appreciate this music and continue to support great programming and the work we do. It’s a special thing to be a part of.
