Composer Vanessa McClintock offers up The Music Master, an entertaining question and answer column about the world of "classical" music. Perspectives and understanding of classical music are provided by direct, and often humorous, answers to obvious and obscure questions about classical music and concerts.
The genesis for The Music Master stems from Miss McClintock's love for music and her nearly "evangelical" eagerness to share this love with people who have had limited exposure to the broad genre of music. Part of her early career in music including writing for the Sacramento Union newspaper as classical music critic and writer, and hosting shows about classical music on Sacramento radio staions.
The Music Master column speaks to most age levels, as well as levels of understanding and appreciation. The Music Master strives to welcome the average listener to the concert, providing confidence through knowledge.
