How many “professional” musicians truly delight in the music they are paid to produce?

Now of course sometimes I only have fear. And sometimes frustration. But, really, I do “truly delight in the music” much of the time.

I wouldn’t want to be in this biz if I didn’t.

Sometimes I am just in wonder … I get to play great music. I get to sit in the middle of an orchestra and be surrounded by incredible musicians. It can be a glorious time. There are moments when I just want to stand up and shout, “This is the best job ever!” There are times when I am so thankful I get to do what I do.

It’s not always perfect. Sometimes it’s just plain exhausting. But I love my job.

The title of the article from which I cut the quote above reads: Non-professionals care more about music.

Sigh.
