In this first episode, we reveal the secrets of the symphony: what it’s really like to work day in and day out with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. As two violinists raising three kids, we find that our job means different things to us on different days. It’s our passion, of course, but it’s also a marathon. The repertoire changes every week, and those weeks keep coming!
We talk about the great parts of the job, as well as the not-so-great. Why do musicians tend to end up with other musicians? Are we always inspired to play each night’s concert? What’s it like to play and to judge auditions?
Your feedback has already shaped this opening episode, so you will hear us lay out many topics that we’ll be covering in future episodes. Keep the suggestions coming at the Stand Partners for Life website!
