Don't Fix It

I think I dig your problem – it’s rubber and it quacks

I, for one, could use a feel-good video today. And so I turn to that classical music standby, Sesame Street. Were you aware that you gotta put down the duckie if you wanna play the saxophone?

Wait, you protest, that was a swingy number! How is that related to classical music? Silly rabbit, watch it again and see how many musicians you can spot. How about Wynton Marsalis, Joe Williams, Paul Simon, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Celia Cruz, Pete Seeger, and the man this family-friendly blog will respectfully refer to as Itzhak mothereffing Perlman?

Also, um, a guy with a clarinet?

About Jenn

Despite being the former digital marketing intern at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Jenn German does not like Mozart. Beethoven could've totally beaten him up. Also she has an arts management graduate degree from American University, but this changes nothing.
