One of the best things about being a musician is the endless variety in the work. In about a 10 day time span, the KSO has performed or will perform a pops concert, a children's concert, a pair of Masterworks concerts, and a concert honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Not to mention the string quartets that have been out and about in the community. Today I started my day with our Family concert performance for a hall full of school children and I will end it with (hopefully!) a hall full of people for our January Masterworks concert. Good beginning, good ending.
I joined the KSO in 1986 as a core cellist. I became its principal cellist in 2000. My 25 years in the KSO have provided me with a wealth of experiences from which to draw in blogging. I involve myself with many different kinds of music besides classical. If it sounds good, it IS good! You should know that all of the posts up to September 30, 2010, inclusive, were written by our first blogger, Katy. We can't seem to get Blogger to make this distinction, so bear that in mind.
