The Orchestra of the Americas Group has introduced a new resource for those exploring what it means to be a musician in today’s world: The SoundPost Podcast, hosted by conductors Carlos Miguel Prieto and Raúl Gómez. Featuring conversations with leading artists like Latin jazz icon Paquito D’Rivera, pianist and Amnesty International Ambassador Gabriela Montero, and the Metropolitan Opera’s Javier Gándara, it aims to broaden our musical horizons by engaging artists across the world. SoundPost is available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google, Anchor, and other podcast platforms.
The OA Group is also still operating its Americas Response distance-learning online platform, which provides free access to performance opportunities and masterclasses with some of the greatest musicians across South, Central, and North America. While making use of this resource, be sure to explore the three arms of Americas Response—OAcademy Online, #AmericasVoices, and Player-to-Player Series—and join this growing community of teaching artists and performers.
