MTT, Skype Rehearsals & Foghorns

The Wall Street Journal published a very charming interview with Michael Tilson Thomas on Thursday. When asked about technology, MTT said that he regularly rehearses with people on Skype. Interestingly, Merola baritone Sidney Outlaw was interviewed on KALW's Open Air the same day & mentioned that he gets lessons with his voice teacher over Skype. Clearly Skype is a good tool for well-traveled classical musicians.

Asked about living in the Bay Area, MTT said that he likes to catch Beach Blanket Babylon once a year & that he "could listen to foghorns happily for many hours with no complaint."
