“As a budding oboist at age 70, I was encouraged by my teacher to attend an open rehearsal by the LSCO. Knowing my level of musicianship was likely far less than most there, I went and was warmly welcomed and had an enormous amount of fun. Playing the first concert, even as 1st Oboe on parts of the Beethoven Symphony #1, was a powerful combination of fear, joy, accomplishment, and anxiety! This is an amazing organization and wonderful musical experience.”
