Presented by the Bringing Music to Life Instrument Drives, which just donated replacement instruments to the Boulder Valley School District for kids who lost instruments in the Marshall Fire.
About the film: "Born into a musical family in New York, Alsop set her sights on becoming a conductor at just nine years old while accompanying her father to one of Leonard Bernstein’s Young People’s concerts. Set to a soundtrack of her performances, 'The Conductor' tells Marin’s story through a combination of interviews, professional and private moments, unseen archival footage with her mentor Leonard Bernstein, and scenes from some of the world’s great orchestras."
