Sarah Willis: First Lady of the Berlin Philharmonic Brass

The horns of the Berlin Philharmonic
Whether you are a fan of "the horn, the horn, the lusty horn" (As You Like It: Act 4, Scene 2), horn players, or the Berlin Philharmonic, you might enjoy 5 minutes of conversation I had recently with Sarah Willis, historically the first woman in the brass section of the Berlin Philharmonic. 
Sarah is in New York City, with her Berliner colleagues, for a performance Saturday night of Mahler's Symphony No. 2 "Resurrection" at the legendary Carnegie Hall. 

Sarah Willis
She was kind enough to grant a phone interview yesterday. 
Thank you, Sarah!
