The Opera Pod

Aug 5, 2021

Dane Lam grew up in sunny Brisbane, and recalls his grandmother playing piano at family gatherings, and started learning himself from a young age. With the support of his state high school, he was able to step onto the podium and try out conducting, and it suited him down to the ground. Going on to become part of a programme creating a new generation of Australian conductors, and from the age of just 17 he was gaining experience and mentorship that would stand him in good stead in the future.  From the University of Queensland, to Juilliard School and the RNCM in the UK, Dane chats openly about different training approaches, imposter syndrome, the significance of the ego and how the role of the conductor shifts in different continents.  Join us for a refreshingly honest insight into the journey of the internationally acclaimed conductor Dane Lam.
