Fun fact about Randolph: I started my musical career in high school playing blues harmonica with friends in a garage band. Flute study didn’t start until college, when my interest in music overtook my original plan to go to art school.
How can the Orchestra make the world a better place? I recently read a piece that clearly illustrated the need for music and art in the world. It asked the question of anyone who considered the arts expendable, to deprive themselves of music, books, movies, television, etc... anything that involved the work of people who create... That would make this a very bleak planet indeed!
