At first, “I really wanted to play the clarinet,” admits flutist Megan Emigh (pronounced AY-mee), who is principal flute for Symphony in C. She explains that the idea was to start, at age 4, on flute, and then switch later to the differently pitched clarinet, where a player has to learn how to transpose. But she liked the flute (even though her older sister already played one). “I never switched!”

Rossen Milanov is a busy man of the world. The miles he racks up, both driving and flying, are great. Just look at his schedule from now through the first week in December: the Colorado Symphony in Denver, the Fort Worth Symphony in Texas, the Princeton Symphony in New Jersey, the Latvian National Symphony in Latvia, the Orchesta Sinfonica del Principado de Asturias in Spain, the Aalborg Symphony in Denmark, and finally back home to lead Camden's Symphony in C. It's almost as though Alec Baldwin is about to come up and ask him, "What's in your wallet?"
