Ronald Braunstein
This morning at 9 I'll talk with Ronald Braunstein, the new conductor of the Vermont Youth Orchestra. He's a Juilliard graduate, and his list of former teachers represents some of the best in 20th c. classical music conductors and composers: Leonard Bernstein, Herbert von Karajan, Milton Babbitt, and Elliot Carter, for starters. And how does ping pong play into his relationships with the students of the VYO? We'll find out!

Also: the Autumnal Equinox was last night at 11:09ET, so we'll welcome the first morning of the new season with music for this quieting, darkening time of the year.
