The Touring Life of a New Century Instrument

The Orchestra is back on the West Coast, and warming up for the concert tonight at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica.

Not only are the musicians seasoned travelers by this point, but so are their instruments. Here’s a glimpse:

Tony's bass, deconstructed

Packed and ready to go

Cellos get their own seats

And they get to pre-board!

Nadja's bow tip showing the hair loss after a wild rehearsal!

Makeshift hotel room music stand

Small aisle, big cello

Practicing in the Green Room

Getting the endpin just right...

Checking the "A"
