Loading: A conductor's passion
Since he was 12 years old, Jerry Junkin knew that he wanted to stand in front of a band and conduct. Junkin is now the Artistic Director and Conductor of the Dallas Wind Symphony and the Director of Bands at The University of Texas at Austin, where he is also a professor. Junkin recently closed out a week of performances for the Bach Festival in Victoria on Saturday. In this audio slideshow by Victoria Advocate multimedia intern Josh Morgan, Junkin talks about what it's like to be a conductor and organizing a group of musicians as he prepares for his performance at the Victoria Fine Arts Center.
