Meet the Press
October 5, 2012 at 7:57 PMToday's Peninsula Clarion Article: "Time-honored Tunes"
If I'd known the press was going to show up to the dress rehearsal, I probably would have gussied up a bit instead of showing up in a grubby shirt and pony tail. Luckily, they didn't get too personal and left me in the background of the photo they used for the front-page article in the Peninsula Clarion. It's a pretty good read, and explains the gist of our annual Evening of Classics concert. You can also catch a glimpse of some of the wonderful people I get to join on the stage. The article doesn't really do justice to their hard work, incredible skill, and beautiful hearts. (Also, they incorrectly depicted me as the wise-crack of the bunch, when everyone knows I should only be taken very seriously. Very. Seriously.)
From marjory langeNice piece, Emily. And you look fine!

I love hearing about the various musical communities you are involved in...a lot to be said for living where you have to make your own kind of music.
From Michael AvaglianoGreat article, Emily! I would've loved to be there! And yes, you are extremely serious. Never a smile or a joke, ever.....

From Emily GrossmanMichael, I wish you could have been there, too! I forgot to record the Bruch (No. VI and II) for you--you'd have been proud of me and Tammy, and several people said they liked the viola best of all. :) I'll send you a link to the Brahms, though. We plan on featuring more Bruch pieces and the Brahms in its entirety in a recital in the near future.

From Francesca RizzardiI loved the references to what it's like in your locale. And pretty clever--getting money from people who wouldn't normally go to your concerts by designing a concert for them!
