About This Show
Crushing Classical podcast is an ongoing series of provocative interviews with musicians who are pioneering a new path in the classical music genre. I dig into musician's lives who have made an often risky move towards forging a unique path and creating a different kind of music career for themselves. This is particularly challenging in a field where the conventional approach is seeking employment in an orchestra. Join me and learn how others are redefining a thriving classical music career.Read more »

A compelling look inside creative music careers!
There are so many more options for classical musicians than symphony job or college professor! I wish this podcast existed back when I was in music school. I could have seen so many more options for my career than I originally thought. I love how Tracy interviews musicians who are doing different things NOW and creating their own unique careers!
