Billy Childs co-hosted Classical IPR's Music at Midday, sharing some of his recordings and discussing composition and his collaborations.

"I don't consciously put on a hat of a particular genre," Childs explained. "I'll use whatever pool of knowledge that I have to serve what I have as a vision for the composition."
