This week’s theme: Hobby
The last rehearsal!
On Tuesday, March 27, 2007, 110 musicians crammed into one of the ballrooms at the Sheraton Manhattan for one last rehearsal — one hour only! — prior to performing at Carnegie Hall the following evening. For most of the people in this picture, music is a hobby — a lifelong avocation — that led them all the way to New York City from their California homes to experience the privilege and honor of performing there.
For most of the folks in this picture (including those who earn their daily bread making music or teaching others to do so), that performance was an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime event.
