A collection of discussions between special guests and Music Director and midday host, Julia Figueras.

On Record with Joseph Young and William Hagen

The next Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra concert features a trio of new faces to our city: guest conductor Joseph Young, violinist William Hagen, and composer Brian Nabors, whose piece “Onward” will be played in Rochester for the first time. Maestro Young and William Hagen came by our studios to discuss the program of Nabors, Barber, and Dvorak with WXXI Music Director Julia Figueras. Along the way, they talked about sports stars, inspirational mentors, and the art of storytelling.
