In this award winning documentary, Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser is an unlikely hero on a mission to create live orchestral shows that aren’t just for the rich and fancy. 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, he 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 uplift all of us beyond race, class and gender barriers. In “Disruptor Conductor”, we see Bartholomew-Poyser on a mission to break down institutional walls and bring live orchestral music to millennials, people of colour, young people, LGBTQ, prisoners, refugees, students; anyone who identifies as ‘other’.
