My wife Andrea (Andrea Lenz—RCO principal oboist) and I often hear from people that we are “so lucky to get to do what we love.” Some days I do indeed love what I do, and some days “a job is a job” and I would rather stay at home with a glass of wine and a good book than go to the 10 millionth rehearsal of my life. When I’m feeling my very best about what I do (both playing music and managing an orchestra), it is because the results cause other people to be happy.

I read the quote here at the Reno Chamber Orchestra’s blog.
