Symphony Nova Scotia gives fans an insider perspective on the arts
Symphony Nova Scotia’s Enough Room podcast offers a unique and hyper-local perspective on the arts, giving fans a chance to eavesdrop on knowledgeable insider conversations. The podcast and video series features the symphony’s artistic leaders discussing issues around diversity, inclusivity, and expanding Halifax’s collective musical horizons.
In a recent episode, music director Holly Matheson joins trailblazing African American conductor Jeri Lynne Johnson for an intimate talk about the pandemic’s impact on live music, the intersection between culture and politics, barriers for people of colour in the arts, and much more.
