Julie Giroux takes musicians and audiences on a journey that is a real sonic adventure and, at the same time, is always fun. NewMusicBox editor Frank J. Oteri talks with her about the ins and outs of the wind band, her career in Hollywood (which led to her being the first female composer to win an Emmy), her wacky arrangements of Christmas songs, and how she’s coping with life in quarantine.
