The Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra League Featured Bassist T. Alan Stewart at their 3rd annual ‘Conversation with the Conductor’ luncheon.

The Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra (WSO) League hosted special guest Principal Bass, T. Alan Stewart at their 3rd annual Conversation with the Conductor luncheon with WSO Music Director and Conductor Janna Hymes at the Two Rivers Country Club. Bassist Stewart demonstrated several of the unique aspects of his bass with the "C extension" that allows lower notes - which he illustrated by playing the well known opening theme from the movie "Jaws". After he performed a beautiful classical number, Janna Hymes took questions from the attendees ranging from how guest artists are selected to acoustics at the Kimball Theater. (Ms. Hymes and Mr. Stewart are shown in the photo from the luncheon.)
