Notes from the Nook: Episode 1 – Musical Authorities


Max Jonas Knaver, Reporter

Anyone can critique music. So what gives someone the credibility and expertise necessary to be called a musical authority? In this inaugural episode of a series of music-related podcasts directly from the Media Center’s own Sound Nook studio, Aidan Epstein and Max Jonas Knaver discuss this question with some of District 14’s most musically-minded, including noted french horn player and pianist Abbi Chapman and middle school band director Danny Trammel. Also in this episode, noted vinyl lover Mr. Hilt leads a roundtable discussion with several of the school’s musically-minded students.
