The Inextinguishable Symphony

September 14, 2006 at 2:48 AM

I meant to recommend a great book that I am reading. It is called "The Inextinguishable Symphony"-a true story of music and love in Nazi Germany. It is more than just a horror novel about the holocaust, it really does tell a poignant and truly beautiful story about music. The Kulturbund orchestras and their growth and fall. Anyway. It is written by Martin Goldsmith.

The Nashville Symphony just did their premier of the new Schermerhorn Symphony Center. I couldn't afford tickets (5 thousand a pop), but I watched the broadcast on television. One of the few times I have plugged in the cable (except for excessive viewings of MASH). I felt proud, excited, and relieved when I watched it. I hope they have openings for auditions in the near future. I feel like I know the Symphony, the players, the area. Hopefully my instrument, too! No openings right now, though. Leonard Slatkin has been instated as their musical director until they find someone permanant.

Sincerely,
Jennfer Warren

p.s. This is my dad's composition mentioned minutes ago in the blog that just downloaded :).
