Bill Sallak – The Power of Trial & Error & Success

Dive in, the water is deep. This episode of Bird in the Wings maybe the deepest dive into the working mind of a musician we have ever done. And that’s saying something.

This time Kelli sits down for a fascinating discussion with UW-Green Bay Music Professor, Bill Sallak. He and Kelli discuss his journey through academia as a student, performer, researcher, and educator. In addition, they also discuss the creation of the new Weidner Philharmonic at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, and the upcoming inaugural concert.

Happy Listening!

The New World Symphony for a New Symphony will take place in Cofrin Family Hall at the Weidner Center on Saturday, Sept 28 at 7:30pm. Get your tickets at
