Melanie Punter has had a busy career as a double bass player for decades. The versatile and talented musician is in demand in modern symphony orchestras, as well as for her work playing baroque and early music with period instrument groups. She spoke with Suzanne about her experiences coming up through the prestigious High School of Music and Art in New York, her work as a member of the Orchestra of St. Luke's and as Principal Bassist of the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra, and why her position was often a lonely one. She even talked about her experience with a certain VERY big heartthrob musician, impressing Suzanne and the Sunday Baroque team into squeals! Find out who it was, and hear their full conversation.
