Normally, when James speaks to people on this podcast, it's someone with whom he's had a long friendship, a deep personal knowledge of, or a proud working relationship. However, today's guest is speaking with James for the first time: violinist and concertmaster for the Philadelphia Orchestra David Kim.
Through a relationship with Kim's mother, James Howell was able to connect to the immensely accomplished Kim for today's episode of Maybe I'm Amazed. In their conversation, Kim talks about the difference of perspective of a student and a professor, the role of a concertmaster, teaching master classes at the University of South Carolina, and James shares a story about his quitting piano lessons and not ever being able to talk to his teacher about it.
