In this episode, Monica sits down with World Maestro, Colin O’Donohoe to discuss his Brave beginnings with music, his dad’s influence on his early music development, how curiosity and wonder keeps him going, and some of the challenges he’s faced along the way. He also shares the process of finding musicians from around the world to form the Pangean Orchestra and Colin’s current fundraising campaign.

Musicians can’t survive in a vacuum. It’s like putting animals in a zoo, we will have a shorter life, we have to be out in the natural habitat of playing in front of people.
— Colin O'Donohoe
Around 5 years old my father bought the Thriller record and “I was so mesmerized, captivated, and I don’t know why but I had this really cool feeling in my body and I don’t know, I just loved it, and I still remember that.”
— Colin O'Donohoe
