In this podcast, Anne Sullivan talks with Mindy Cutcher, harpist for the Pennsylvania Ballet in Philadelphia. Mindy discusses every aspect from the technique you need, to the musicality of the cadenza, to the different ways to play it in concert or for the ballet. Plus she has some funny stories about life in the ballet pit! And when you’re inspired by the conversation, you can begin working on the cadenza right away using this three-week practice plan to get the cadenza ready in time for Nutcracker season!
