Happy first day of fall!
Two links for you. From NPR, a piece on the Finnish men's choir Mieskuoro Huutajat, or Shouting Men. The NPR piece is about 2 minutes long. The website for the group is here.
And from my friend SW, a delightfully catty piece from the New York Times about French horn players messing up. I must have more than a touch of schadenfreude in me, because there is nothing to get me cackling "Oh no he DIDN'T!" like a snarky music critic being harsh. (Towards someone other than myself, of course, let's be clear.) Imagine playing a concert last December and having someone dredge it up and make comments about how terrible it is nine months later!
