This week, the world of classical music and community of orchestra bassists, myself included, pay tribute to not only a very special lady with a very special birthday, but also a milestone that is hitting a very high note with the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest professional tenure with a single ensemble.
When you have a passion, you show commitment, and she is a prime example of this. She truly is an inspiration to us as she is quite fluent in the universal language: music.
Thank you for sharing your dedication and your talent with the world.
Here's to you, Jane..:

Have a great weekend, everyone!
