Keeping the tradition alive
Don Baker plays the timpani backstage of the Lucie Stern Community Theatre during rehearsal of Mozart's "The Magic Flute" on May 20, 2014. As the orchestra pit is too small to accomodate the entire orchestra, orchestra members must use the theatre's basement and backstage areas to perform while watching a live feed of conductor José Luis Moscovich which is displayed on a tv monitor.
