Hornist Amy Sanchez is a very successful and very busy freelancer living in Los Angeles. But she is so much more than that. In addition to all her various activities as a musician, she has also done a 99 day trip around the United States visiting all the National Parks, has become involved with NkombeRhino, a South African organization that focuses on the protection of endangered species (and in the process founded Horns for Rhino), has a pilot's license, and is probably the only freelancer in Los Angeles to have bought a house in Sitka, Alaska!
During the week of our conversation, Amy had a VERY busy week, flying to San Francisco to play offstage in a Vienna Philharmonic concert, playing on a Thomas Newman session for a Pixar animated movie, playing Sondheim's Sunday in the Park with George, and also teaching 12+ lessons at UCLA. So we begin by talking about that week and what the life of a freelancer is like. We end with Amy talking about the beginning of her career, studying at Ithaca College and the University of Southern California and touring with Blast.
