We started this podcast because being a classical musician is a difficult profession. David Oistrakh said the stage is one of the loneliest places on earth. I think what he was expressing was how few people understand the demands, sacrifice, and service that being a musician takes.
And during this time of year..this most wonderfully busy time of year, where it’s pretty normal to have 3 or 4 services a day, you most likely only have time to say hi and goodbye to the other musicians at your gig before racing out the door to get to the next one.
So we believe that sitting down and talking with other musicians can be incredibly encouraging and inspiring….most of the time. This might not be one of those times.
