Harada: How To Become A Conductor

Nice video featuring Keitaro Harada who was kind enough to make a comment here on Kurashi recently. I wish him best of luck.

I like how he is challenging a most difficult job - how to become a conductor. Teary eyes, goose bumps, well, I have been there, at different occasions, when I have had to speak up at international conferences, confronting the people in power.

Guts. It takes a lot of konjo.

Tokyo alone has some 7 classical symphony orchestras. It only takes one hard-working, genius conductor to make one of them world-class. Do wear a kimono, or hakama, instead of the tuxedo, if that is what it takes. There is enough talent here, to make it happen.
