Once again it's a Member Drive edition of the program. Our special guest for the hour is Craig Jessop, Music Director of the American Festival Chorus and Orchestra.

Previously in his career, Dr. Jessop was music director of the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square, and for many years he led musical groups in the U.S. Air Force. He is also a former Dean of the USU Caine College of the Arts. He’s currently Professor of Choral Conducting at USU. We’ll talk about conducting, the power of music, what makes a great singer, favorite people he has worked with - including Robert Shaw, John Rutter and Angela Lansbury - and memorable events from his career in music.
