An interview with new Associate Conductor, Stephanie Childress

Stephanie Childress, the Festival’s new Associate Conductor, sat down for a 10-minute chat via Zoom with Music Director Alasdair Neale in April 2023 to talk about her path to becoming a conductor, what she looks forward to in Sun Valley, and more. It’s an insightful look at the journey music professionals take to develop their craft, and it’s fun to hear a newcomer’s perspective on the Festival. Enjoy!
