I have often thought that being a professional musician is a lot like being a professional athlete. Now, I come across an extremely well-written article by a violinist in the Syracuse (NY) Symphony making exactly this parallel. Indeed, it hits home so well that I have been posting it on just about every forum available to me--Facebook, Twitter, this blog, and even e-mail--in an attempt to get as many people to read it as possible. If you've ever felt that musicians have it easy, please click through and read this article. We love what we do, but DAMN, it's hard work.
