Episode 008 – Hey Comrade, No Frisbee in Red Square – The Career Changing Moments for Violinist Frank Almond



Violinist Frank Almond’s career began in one of the first U.S. Suzuki studios, in San Diego California. From quitting the violin in his teens, to acceptance into the Juilliard School in only a few short years, his career took him to Moscow, a violin competition memorialized in an ’80’s documentary, to concertmaster positions in New York City Ballet, Texas, London, Holland, and Milwaukee-where his career took maybe the strangest turn of all, all due to an email from out of the blue. Listen to this 4th of July episode that will tie together the worlds of America, Soviet Moscow, and the Italian Baroque.
