There are as many musical stories in the naked city as there are musicians, and it’s a guarantee that almost no two are alike. These stories rarely make it into Arts & Leisure or garner a million social media followers, but they are an indispensable part of the city’s fabric of music culture — and no portrait of musical New York is complete without a set of such snaps. On this episode of CityFM, we’ll meet some of these characters, the regular musicians and the forms their work takes: the professional instrumentalists who’ve settled into being guns for hire in the city’s orchestra pits, music lifers who’s “made it” and continues to push themselves into music with full gusto. These are actual musicians — and these are their lives.
