“One of the things you do as a professional classical musician is play ‘church jobs,’ ” Wurman says, “and I always felt that this is so wonderful, all this music, the collection of people, this beautiful room. But there was something lacking.”

Hmmm. Perhaps it’s faith that’s lacking? Just an idea ….

I read it here.

  1. Nice article. It’s interesting to see what an old colleague is up to these days.

    Felix played in the touring Phantom orchestra with me for a year. He was quite an unusual character. Rode a Vespa or some such scooter on busy roads to the theatre. Improvised during the show. Totally stoned all the time. (Which was why he was let go after a year.) Made a killer cup of cappuchino!! He brought a fancy coffee-maker on the road with him.

    His father is a film scorer in L.A. I’m trying to remember the name of the film that Felix played on…beautiful cello.

  2. If he played for a film he might even be listed on IMDB. I’ll check it out later.

    Small world, eh?

  3. Yes, it is indeed a small world!

    Actually, it seems that Felix is doing the perfect thing. He’s combining his considerable talents with his unusual personality.

    Good idea about finding a listing for the film. Meanwhile, my brain is still frustratingly blank about the title. :-(

  4. He’s listed as the cellist for “Normal” and “Everyone Says I Love You”. I’ve not heard of either, but I miss a ton of movies.

  5. It’s “Normal”, actually! Rent it sometime.

    Thanks for giving my brain a nudge! ;-)

  6. Gee … speaking of brains and nudging, I first read your comment (via email) and thought you were responding to the “Rent” quote I put up today, and I thought you were telling me it was normal to like Rent better than Boheme and that I should rent it sometime.

    Geesh … I think I need a nap! :-)
