21 Oct Marietta’s Conductor, Paul Scanling
As soon as he could reach the keys, Paul started piano lessons. He went on to the flute, then on to several other instruments (and singing). He also had an ear for music, he could hear a song and play it on several instruments.
Now he conducts several groups, teaches private lessons and sings on the choir on Sunday.
But he believes that classical music has a presentation problem… So now he is conducting the Marietta Symphony Orchestra at Raul Thomas’s Theater on the Square on 10/28/17. He is going to treat classical music like other music forms. He going to tell the story of each piece he does.
Sounds like a plan!
