Robert Franz - Boise Philharmonic Music Director

Can actively listening to classical music help create better students? Conductor Robert Franz, the new Music Director for the Boise Philharmonic, thinks so.

Joan Cartan-Hansen talks with Franz about his nationally recognized efforts in arts education and about the future of classical music and the arts in Idaho. Franz became the Boise Philharmonic's Music Director this season. A champion of new music, Franz also serves as resident conductor of the Buffalo Philharmonic and as Music Director of the Mansfield Symphony in Ohio.
