Episode 004 – The Six Million Dollar Musicians, Doug Prosser and Chris Wu



Episode 4 of “Stages to Success” is an interview with Doug Prosser, principal trumpet of the Rochester Philharmonic and Chris Wu, from the first violin section of the Pittsburgh Symphony.  Doug and Chris both stared down the barrel of a career-ending injury very early in their promising careers.   Their returns to the symphony orchestra are remarkable and inspiring.   Hear how Doug had to rebuild from the very beginnings of his studies, and how Chris cheated death and came back to his career that has taken him to concerts around the world.
