May is “Take a Friend to Orchestra Month,” a new initiative started by Drew McManus, author of the blog “Adaptistration” at Artsjournal.com, in order to bring newcomers to the concert hall. In the spirit of the month, Drew has taken host John Schaefer’s brother Jerry to a concert by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Jerry has previously never been to an orchestral concert, busy as he is running a lumber yard in Queens. Today, we get Jerry’s reaction to the experience when both he and Drew join us on the program.
As such, You’ll be able to hear my TAFTO contribution today, live on Soundcheck. It promises to be loads of fun and if you miss the live broadcast, you’ll be able to pull up the recording any time later by visiting the Soundcheck archives.
