Nicole Jordan, the principal librarian of the Philadelphia Orchestra, makes sure that the right piece of music is with the right person at the right time, in the right place — a crucial function in the fast-paced world of concert production. Nicole tells David MacDonald and Philip Rothman about how she got started as an orchestral librarian, from her early days as an intern to her current position at one of the world’s leading orchestras. We discuss the role that music notation software has in her work, and how it was essential in helping her nail the biggest audition of her career.
Then, Nicole reverses roles on the podcast and asks us about our software recommendations and gets our advice for people who are just beginning their technological journey.
