Harpist Ann Hobson Pilot

3380793-1494063720.jpg

In this encore broadcast Jill speaks with harpist Ann Hobson Pilot, who in 2009 retired from her post as harpist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. We speak about her personal experience as the first and only African American musician in one of the world's most prestigious symphonies, and how that aspect of the music business has changed. Ms. Pilot appeared in recital with violinist Tai Murray on November 21, 2010 at the Settlement Music School's Germantown branch in Philadelphia.
