Season 2, Episode 1: Joseph Caulkins

He is the recipient of the 2019 Arts Leadership Award for Artistic Achievement for Sarasota County, freelance writer and music critic, author of a new vocal pedagogy text, mountain climber, and conductor and artistic director of Sarasota's symphonic chorus, Key Chorale.

Joseph Caulkins didn't get his start as a singer or choral conductor, but his jazz saxophone major in college wasn't quite working out for him. Hear how his musical journey of choral conducting brought him to the Suncoast of Florida as the musical leader of Key Chorale, his vision that expanded Key Chorale's mission to include music therapy for Parkinson's and Alzheimer's patients, and his new vocal pedagogy book, Developing Choral Sound Through the Warmup.
