Ron Jones on Performing in Carnegie HallBeing able to perform in Carnegie Hall is the dream of many young musicians all over the world, but actually taking the stage can be a nerve-wracking experience no matter your age. This feeling is well known to conductor Ron Jones of Port Angeles, Washington. Over the past thirty years, he has led his students in a number of Carnegie Hall concerts, and is returning to the historic hall to perform selected works later this year in April. We spoke with him to get an inside look at what it takes to lead young musicians in one of the most important music venues in the world.
