Cal Performances Director Matias Tarnopolsky joins me as co-host this week on The Do List, which is a delight. He dives deep into the worlds of classical music and dance, offering insights into the concerts we covered, including work by Leonard Bernstein, Philip Glass and Joby Talbot. We also gave Matias a crash course in pop, with a discussion of rocker Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys. Matias is game for anything so it’s a great podcast this week.
