It looks like more and more musicians have difficulties passing through airport security. Have any of you experienced any problems traveling with your instruments?

Happy 81st Birthday John Williams! 

"On the original films, I was looking for somebody who really understood classical movie scoring, and I was talking to Steve Spielberg about it, and he had worked with Johnny on Jaws and said, 'This is the man for you. He's perfect. He really understands that medium." And once I worked with him on Star Wars, I wouldn't have anybody else doing it." GEORGE LUCAS

Happy 112th Birthday Jascha Heifetz! (1901 - 1987)

Here's a fun story:
Fellow violinist Mischa Elman, hearing the young Jascha Heifetz for the first time, turned to his friend pianist Leopold Godowsky and, pulling at his collar, said, "Awfully hot in here, isn't it?" To which Godowsky replied, "Not for Pianists!"

The Earth Harp is the longest stringed instrument in the world, with strings that extend up to 1,000 feet in length. The Earth Harp’s first installation featured the resonating chamber mounted on one side of a valley with the strings stretched out nearly 1,000 ft to the other side.

How does the Earth Harp work? The Earth Harp is played using violin resin on cotton gloves and musical bows. The performer’s hands are run along the strings to created beautiful cello like tones. The act of rubbing the strings creates a longitudinal compression wave.

Easter Island, Chile is famous for its 887 mysterious monumental statues, called moai, created by the early Rapanui people. Nowadays the island has around 5000 inhabitants and also a newly opened music school where, for the first time, young Rapanui kids can have the opportunity on the island to learn an instrument. 

They don't have a physical space to call their own and they are in a campaign to find funding, sponsorships or instrument donations. Any kind of help and support is very welcome:

I'm not even a bassoon player. I just like the Contrabassoon.
