To the couple of buddies who form a brass quintet, and find a gig at a nursing home.
To the ukulele wizard who builds a following of 10 people on Instagram.
To the busker who just plays for the love of music on the Boardwalk.
To the bassoon quartet... Sorry, I can't say that with a straight face...
To anyone who gets outside of their comfort zone, who acts because they just can't not act on their desires, who overcomes their fear and hits "publish" on a blog or Facebook video...
I salute you. You are carrying on a great tradition, one that I am proud to be a part of.
Now go practice.
