My Dream Job

The Utah Symphony named a new conductor yesterday: Thierry Fischer. From the Utah Symphony website:

Swiss conductor Thierry Fischer is Principal Conductor of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and also Chief Conductor of the Nagoya Philharmonic. From 2001-2006 he was Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor of the Ulster Orchestra. In 2009 he was named Music Director of the Utah Symphony.

Of all jobs on the planet, I think conducting a symphony would be one of the very coolest. That’s my ultimate dream job. Too bad there is virtually no way that could ever happen.
