In the Key of ‘D’anzmayr: The Glamorous Life of a Musician
You take your seat in a beautiful auditorium, maybe one that is a century or more old. Â You settle into your seat and thumb through the program as musicians filter onto the stage. Â Then the lights dim, out strides the Concertmaster, the orchestra does a final tune, and the conductor steps out.
What a wonderful job to have! Â Stage lights, a live audience, and spending your life making music for others.
It is not all bright lights and big cities, as you probably know. Â There is so much work which goes into not just being able to play the instrument, but into each performance as you learn more and more music over your lifetime. Â Then there are teaching and travel schedules, time away from home…it’s a long list.
Today, David Danzmayr and I discuss the glamorous life of musicians.
