I hope that readers enjoyed Orchestras – A Secret Society of Weirdoes (and I’m one of them!), which I put out on the blog yesterday as part 4 of This Crazy Business. This series has been a lot of fun to write, and I’m in the middle of putting together the next installment, which covers a topic near and dear to my heart:
Or, more specifically, the utterly insane (all-night, across three states, over ice and snow for $50) commuting situations that many classical musicians seem to shrug off as par for the course. Many of the topics discussed in this upcoming installment have their roots in Road Warrior Without an Expense Account, my ten-part series about life as a freelance musician.
I’d also like to thank Bill Harrison for putting out Making a Living, a great post about how we musicians fit (or don’t fit) into greater society. Bill blogs at Jazz Underneath and is the founder of PlayJazzNow.com.
As always, clicking the Articles link in the menubar will take you to an index and summary page of all long-form blog content, including all of our longer series posts, crazy gig stories, and other such tales.
