Episode 11 - Alison Harvey, Assistant Concertmaster
Our musicians are not only talented performers, but they're also very well-rounded and have many other interests besides music. This week, I'm joined by a dear friend who is passionate about many things outside of music, especially her affinity for dogs and other animals. When she's not teaching or performing, Alison can be seen walking around historic Summerville with one of her dogs and family members. This has been a lifelong passion for her, just as music has been. Alison's musical training began at home, on piano. Before long, she was picking up the violin and learning how to take on the world with her music.
Join us today as we dive into discuss our mutual love for dogs, overcoming performance anxiety and some strategies for it, discussing violas and their unique sizes, and of course Alison's amazing life story.
At the end, stay tuned to hear Alison perform Théodore DuBoise's "Andante religioso" (accompanied by Ward Moore), and also hear her play 1st violin on a Summerville Orchestra string quartet performance of Max Richter's "On the Nature of Daylight."
