Practice, Practice, Practice

Everyone knows the riddle: How do you get to Carnegie Hall? And the answer: Practice, practice, practice. But what if you practice, practice, practice, and still don't get there?

Everyone knows the riddle: How do you get to Carnegie Hall? And the answer: Practice, practice, practice. But what if you practice, practice, practice, and still don't get there?

Four musicians describe the physical and mental challenges they face pursuing, against the odds, careers in classical music.

Practice, Practice, Practice features the voices of Andrew McCann (violin), Emily Hu (cellist), Alexandra Jones (cellist), and anonymous (cellist), and music by Stanzi Vaubel. Sound engineering for the musical arrangement is by Lucas Segall.
