I don’t always care for flashmobs, but when they are done well they are so much fun!

I first met Lynne Cohen when I was playing Hans Christian Anderson which was being conducted by her husband Constantine Kitsopoulos. He had told me his wife played oboe … way to make me even more nervous! But she was lovely and very gracious. We met up again when we did the recording of Baz Luhrmann’s La Boheme when I was playing principal oboe and she played English horn. Up until now I hadn’t heard her students. Wow … I’m impressed!

“It’s supposed to be fun. The man says ‘play ball’ not ‘work ball’ you know.”

-Willie Stargell

And I play oboe, not work oboe, as Dan just reminded me.

Clearly he’s never tackled the oboe!
