I've never played in an orchestra that was that happy before. In fact it's usually quite the opposite.

Gotta love union gigs.

Don't cross the International Brotherhood of Violinists Union Local 56. They don't just carry maplewood in doze cases.

I played the violin and the viola when I was young and I think one of my biggest regrets is that I didn't keep at it after high school.

That should be me in the zoot suit playing the solo :(

That guy could play some serious Guitar Hero, let me tell you. Look at those fingers go.

Shame he wasn't around to put those talents to use.

I'm not even one of Those Guys and this comment made me snort indignantly.

Well done!

Mendelssohn moves neither my heart nor my soul.

Jesus, Mendelssohn really hated violinists.

I don't always like Heifitz, but must admit that he's an incredible violinist. He played this concerto when he was seven.

I never liked playing classical music when I was studying it. Only masochists and workaholics find it rewarding. Sure there might be a concerto or two you like to play as a violinist, but you better not step out in the light of day with it unless you are ready to be assaulted by judgments. The really good ones were born into it and you'll always have that glass ceiling above your head because you're not a prodigy. It's only by the grace of god that anyone gets any good without having their ego beaten to a pulp by the end of it.

Screw that. I jumped ship and went to a jazz school instead. Now when I play music, I actually have fun with it. What a concept.

Thank god no one is judgmental if you're a jazz musician.
