Interview with Paul MacAlindin

MY GUEST TODAY IS PAUL MACALINDIN  Paul MacAlindin discovered from an early age that he loved being an artist leading artists. As a musician, dancer and all-round performer, he found his voice through conducting, a passionate journey that has led him to work with orchestras and ensembles all over the world, from the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra to the Armenian Philharmonic to the Düsseldorf Symphoniker. In 2008, he began the biggest and riskiest adventure of his life, Music Director of the National Youth Orchestra of Iraq. Together with the most amazing young people from Iraq, he built an international hit out of despair and hopelessness. His book, UPBEAT: the story of the National Youth Orchestra of Iraq, comes out in September 2016, Sandstone Press.   PAUL CAN BE REACHED BY PHONE AT 44-746-466-9972 OR BY E-MAIL AT PAUL@NYOIRAQ.ORG MORE INFORMATION ON HIS BOOK CAN BE FOUND HERE http://www.amazon.com/Upbeat-Paul-MacAlindin/dp/1910985090/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1459116313&sr=8- 1&keywords=UPBEAT+macalindin   And, of course, you can connect with him also on twitter here   http://www.twitter.com/UPBEAT_book
