You're about to hear the Boise Phil really swing with guest conductor Carl Topilow at the podium.
He's as adept with a baton as he is with his signature colorful clarinets. He has a great sense of humor to boot.
The conductor of his own orchestra, the Cleveland Pops, Topilow will lead the Boise Philharmonic this weekend in a program that will range from Big Band-era favorites and light classical to Broadway, Dixieland and Klezmer.
Topilow also will lead the Casual Classics program Saturday morning.
