In the years before one could have music just spill out of a box at the press of a button, people had to make their own. In Houston there is an orchestra made up of physicians, these doctors had music as a friend and ally during their long years of study. It is not surprising that educators recommend that all students explore music by learning an instrument. In the nineteenth century the amount of time devoted to the arts was much higher than today and many accomplished people were also proficient musicians.
On the Piano this Sunday music of famous people, not well known musicians, but those who are better known for their other accomplishments; in this case literary. Hear "It's not my day job" on the Piano this Sunday afternoon at 5 on KPAC & KTXI.
