This week I get to sit down with Amir Kats. Amir is an award-winner conductor who currently is in his seventh season as conductor of the St. Paul JCC’s Symphony, fifth year as the orchestra and band teacher at Blake Middle School in Hopkins, and the first-year conductor of the Roseville String Ensemble. We talk about the importance of arts in schools, what it's like to lead one of the oldest community orchestras in the U.S., and how he juggles it all, on this week's Who The Folk Podcast. https://www.stpauljcc.org/programs/cultural-arts/symphony/
