S1E7 - "What are your thoughts on [insert name of classical composer]?" Your heart begins to race, your palms sweat. Everyone around you is unsure of why you have started to softly weep. "I think they are great," you respond. And you've just lied. Sound familiar? No? Maybe it's just us. This episode, we discuss how individual opinions of classical composers can often be influenced by pressures from the music culture. Is it OK to not like Mozart? Of course! But do we often feel comfortable sharing these opinions? And do we also allow others to express these opinions without clutching the pearls? Dive into this with us. Afterwards, Spencer talks with composer and performer Josh Henderson about his experiences in NYC, his influences on his writing, and his feelings on the current contemporary music genre. Take a listen!
