About Beyond the Baton: A Conductor's Journey

Born to a single mother on welfare, Thomas Wilkins grew up to become one of the few remarkable African American conductors leading a major orchestra — the celebrated Omaha Symphony. BEYOND THE BATON: A CONDUCTOR'S JOURNEY is an hour-long film that documents Wilkins’ experience as a Black conductor and his larger impact on the musical world.
