Symphony Spotlight highlights the careers of orchestral musicians across the country. My guest today is Michael Lisicky, oboist with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Besides his orchestral work, Michael is a founding member of the ensemble Trio La Milpa, along with BSO Principal Oboist Katherine Needleman and oboist Sandra Gerster. He’s also a member of Turbine, a trio that includes BSO Principal Horn Phil Munds and pianist Mary Woehr. Their CD is available for purchase on Amazon.
Michael leads a second career as a best-selling author and nationally recognized department store historian. All of his department store books are available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and numerous other websites. He also wrote the 100th anniversary book about the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, “A Century of Sound.”
Enjoy our entertaining chat!
Yours in good music,
