A Conversation with Ardean Watts

Sep 9, 2015

Wednesday, Doug’s guest is Ardean Watts, who served as associate conductor of the Utah Symphony and is Professor Emeritus of Music at the University of Utah. Watts says that if there’s one unifying theme in his life though, it’s that he’s a generalist who is interested in everything. So, we’ll ask him to tell us stories from his distinguished music career, but we’ll also talk about his LDS background, raising a family of 8 kids, Chinese philosophy, mushroom hunting and more.

VideoWest went mushroom hunting with Ardean Watts. Mushrooms are the perfect symbol for his philosophy of life ... a love of unruly things.
