« back to classes page
This course focuses on the life and work of orchestral musicians. Four Sarasota Orchestra musicians offer seven lectures on different aspects of their jobs including: “Traditions of the Orchestra,” “Conductors,” “Auditions,” “Life of a String Player,” “The Role of Music Librarians,” and what a “Week in the Life” of a typical orchestral musician entails. Enjoy the behind-the-scenes stories from the lives of the
musicians you see on stage: how they got there, their educational training, and how they spend their days, as told by the artists themselves.
