Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser is an unlikely hero on a mission to create live orchestral shows that are for everyone. Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser is one of the first openly gay black conductors in Canada. The child of a working-class Caribbean single mother, he was raised in Calgary, Alberta and he understands what it is to be an ‘other’. As he struggled with his sexuality, Bartholomew-Poyser turned to music for solace and finally found his voice as a conductor. He believes that the beauty and grace of music can unite and uplight all of us beyond race, class and gender barriers.
