|Raymond Leppard is UIndy artist-in-residence|
Since his retirement as the ISO's fifth music director, Leppard has held the position of conductor laureate. He conducts the ISO's annual "Classical Christmas" concert at the Scottish Rite Cathedral. A resident of Indianapolis and a naturalized U.S. citizen, Leppard continues to make guest-conducting appearances here (including at UIndy) and abroad.
The one-hour interviews will air at 7 p.m. Sundays, starting July 7, and at noon Saturdays on WICR's digital HD-2 channel.
"The conversations will be illustrated with recordings from Leppard's personal collection and with stories from his six decades on the podium," according to a University of Indianapolis news release.
