Don't Fix It

You do need to tell them twice

A violist calls the orchestra office and asks for the conductor. The receptionist picks up and says, “I’m so sorry, but haven’t you heard? The conductor died last night.” The violist apologizes and hangs up, but a moment later calls back and asks for the conductor again. “I told you,” says the receptionist, “he died last night!”

“I know,” says the violist. “I just

like to hear you say it.”

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.

  1. Nice! Not all of us are that bad, are we?! On the other hand, I bet you could replace any instrument of the orchestra in this one…

  2. I had a friend who decided to play the viola.
    Emphasis on the word “had”
