One of the great joys of being married to a conductor is the musician friends who come to stay with us. Guitarist Ben Verdery, legendary performer, composer, and teacher, just performed with the Simon Sinfonietta in Cape Cod, MA and it was great to sit in the kitchen and listen to his practicing for a few days. As he said in his interview at WCAI, "Yes, I still practice 5 or 6 hours a day."He has a new website which is filled with videos and photos and music and deep thoughts.
Just a wonderful human being.. with a photo of the Dali Lama taped to the side of his magnificent guitar for inspiration.
