Sarah Willis is Developing a New Livestream Conversation. Tune in!

Sarah Willis is an engaging horn player. Her work with the Berliner Philharmoniker is well documented both onstage and with the series of interviews she has undertaken in the Digital Concert Hall. She has also recently started new a new kind of conversation about matters related to playing the horn.

Since September her website: www.sarah-willis.com has carried a livestream page where she created live interviews with legendary horn players like Gail Williams on matters technical and musical. Prior interviews can also be heard afterward in an archive on her site: http://www.sarah-willis.com/videos/

The site creates an opportunity to hear conversation about musicianship that is wide-ranging and of interest outside of the horn community. Her chat with Jeff Nelson of "Fearless Performance" fame is a great place to start.

I will be tuning in on Monday to hear the interview with Myron Bloom, another legendary musician who was Principal Horn of the Cleveland Orchestra under George Szell, and who remained in the orchestra until 1977. Bloom is currently on the faculty at Jacobs School of Music.

The live interview begins at 2:30pm in Berlin, which is 8:30am here on the East Coast.
