Kudos to the BSO team (Leslie Foley!) for creating performances to share in Boston in a pandemic safe way. With my colleagues, Rebecca Gitter, violist and Owen Young, cellist, we traveled by DUCK BOAT to the Boston Public Library, Ellis Memorial Center and the Clarke Showroom in Seaport to give three mini performances. Despite challenges of keeping our bows on the string due to gusty winds and wailing police sirens, the audiences were wonderfully receptive, and we had a great time.
In a group effort, the Duck Boat was donated as was the police escort. Arbella Insurance was our sponsor, we had John and Tuaha helping with set up and mics, Toby switched from trombonist to photographer, and we had people working hard behind the scenes (Alex, Kristie and many others).
