Beyond Stage Fright

By Nicole Wilson  -  28 May 2015

The coolest, calmest musicians in the world can give the impression of complete and total unflappability, but do not be fooled. Performance anxiety, often known as stage fright can affect even the most consummate professionals. In this online summit, pianist Charlotte Tomlinson releases interviews from musicians including violinist Hilary Hahn, pianist John Lill and Opera singer Roderick Williams as they talk openly and frankly about the way they cope with performance stress.
