David Krauss is the prodigious host of Speaking Soundly, Co-Founder of ANM (Artful Narratives Media), and Principal Trumpet of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. As a soloist, he has performed with the All-Star Orchestra on their Emmy Award-winning PBS broadcast and was praised by the American Record Guide for his “singing tone, which is luxurious and inviting.” He has performed as guest Principal Trumpet with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra, and New York Philharmonic, as well as recorded for film and television, and played on several Broadway shows. David is a highly sought-after instructor at the Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music, Mannes School of Music, Aspen Music Festival and School, and other top conservatories and music festivals throughout the United States.
In this conversation, we started early in David’s story and explored the realities of life for a freelance musician – the ways the work comes and goes, the risks and the magic. We talked about the complicated and fulfilling life of a parent playing in a major opera orchestra.
And we talked about how podcasting – for both of us! – has been a portal into conversations with other artists. How David’’s fascination with the CRAFT of other high-level musicians and creatives is leading to inspiration for him and for his audience. I loved hearing him light up around his curiosity, his guests, and his experiences having these conversations.
I know you’ll love hearing his story.
