From my friend Michael Steinberg, eminent musicologist, after his first night out with the Oregon East Symphony (if you know Michael’s inimitable way of speaking, it is even funnier)…
“This orchestra drinks like…. a German orchestra…..”
I’m not really sure what that means, but it sounds good.
Michael later suggested we write a grant for a musicologist-in-residence so that he would have ample time to sample all the local beers and wines…..
