A law firm hired our string trio musicians to play at their branch opening here, in Pittsburgh. I have never seem so many lawyers in one room! I hate to admit it but they were ignorant bunch. Usually when we play around in such small settings, people comment and somehow acknowledge our playing. Here we felt invisible to all of them. We took a five minute break at some point and I think most of it was spent trying to get in the room where our cases were – people simply would move when you ask them, even after several polite attempts. I met a lawyer not long ago who said “…I would rather be a human then a lawyer..” That says it all.
