I was recently interviewed for “Performance Today” on the subject of music nerd-ism. The interview aired July 21. I’m going to backdate this entry to make it look like I’m somewhat on top of my career. I totally posted this on July 22nd, guys. Totally. *shifty eyes*
Click here. I’m in Hour 2, minute 16:45, for about four minutes. Right now my bucket list looks somewhat like this:
shoot the breeze with Fred Child
When I was in seventh grade, and away at school during the day, I’d order my mom to tape an hour of public radio so I could listen to it when I got home. Clearly, not just the music nerd-ism, but the public radio nerd-ism runs deep. After this, there’s obviously not much left for me to accomplish, so I may just announce my retirement at twenty-six. (Just Kidding! How could anyone retire with all of the potential 2015 labor disputes brewing?) I’ll post more this August. I’m taking the summer to write some more experimental essays, before launching into the Minnesota Orchestra’s star-studded 2015-2016 season, as well as any out-of-town labor disputes that boil over. I promise cool content and fewer family-death-induced hiatuses.

Dang…you are a musician….didn’t you learn how to fake it? Where did you go to music school?
I didn’t; I’m self-taught at everything. I had a few years of violin lessons in my pre-teens and early teens, but nothing long-term. Not particularly proud of that, but hey – it is what it is!
