Michael Whight

Having been an experienced principal clarinetist in a number of major London orchestras, Michael Whight speaks openly about how he manages the stress and challenges of the job, how he feels people manage nerves in orchestras and the unwritten rules that keep the subject of nerves taboo.

He talks about how orchestral players feel about conductors, the issues of managing the very particular stress of auditions and the how he feels that orchestras and the musicians in them, need to be more valued and more resourced.
