Amateurs vs Professionals

Filed under: Business — Tags: , , , — connieterwilliger @ 11:15 am

The Internet voiceover community is ablaze with controversy these days. Perhaps it is the business climate fanning the flames, but there has been a lot of talk about professionals versus amateurs. Who should be allowed to play in the sand box? Should there be separate sand boxes?

Check out Paul Strikwerda’s Double Dutch blog this week. He reposted it on LinkedIn as well, so be sure to follow the threads in both places. Very interesting. I love the way Paul writes in general, but this post included references to classical symphonies -a subject near to my heart because my brother is a world-class Horn Player with (according to Paul’s sources) the world’s 6th best orchestra.

  1. Hi Connie:

    Thanks for picking this story up and for saying such nice things about my writings. Didn’t your brother’s orchestra come to Carnegie Hall this year, playing Beethoven’s 9th? If only I could have been there!

    • Yes Paul. He was there. Extraordinary performance, according to all reports. My mom came down from Hudson by train for the concert – just a few weeks before she moved out here to San Diego near me. I haven’t heard my brother in a real hall since he was with the Munich Phil in their gorgeous space. I’ve only had the pleasure of hearing him practice on my back deck during a visit here a few years ago.
