Every Wednesday, we feature one Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra member to answer some fun questions about themselves. Today we will be hearing from Joseph Foley in our trumpet section.
I started playing the trumpet when I was ten. My older brother was my first teacher. How long have I been playing- a LONG time!
What is your favorite memory from performing with Pro Arte?
I don’t know if it’s my favorite memory, but I do remember having to shovel out my driveway for a few hours, then driving over to Sanders Theatre to play Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto #2! (Then leaving early the next morning to join a tour in Seattle.)
What is your non-musical hobby?
I’m a Boston sports junkie, enjoy tennis, running and single malt scotch.
What is your favorite movie and why?
Favorite movie. That’s a tough one. I’d have to put Braveheart up there- I love Scotland. Mostly the classics. You know- Animal House, Blazing Saddles….
