Daily Pilot clips

The Daily Pilot serves the cities of Newport Beach, Costa Mesa and Irvine. It is part of Times Community News, a division of the Los Angeles Times. The primary writing I do for the Daily Pilot is a music column called “Classically Trained,” where I write about local music events, do features on musicians and review concerts.

A veteran violist: Story on Bob Becker, the longtime principal viola to the Pacific Symphony who came to California from his native Tennessee.

Music runs in the family: Story on Maxim Eshkenazy, the assistant conductor of the Pacific Symphony and a native of Bulgaria.

Stories from the Golden Age: I got to interview Jim Decker, a famous horn player from the Hollywood of yesteryear.

Polka? Yes: I wandered around the Orange County Accordion Festival and this is what I found.

A long time ago: In a galaxy far, far away, I was influenced by “Star Wars” and tied that into a kids concert.
