Hi Reddit, Kevin Kumar and Maia Jasper White here! Individually, we've played as session musicians on lots of movies, tv shows, and albums recorded in Hollywood. Together, we're the directors of Salastina, a non-profit concert series. We're here to answer any questions you might have about what it's like to be a studio musician. We're especially excited to tell you about our FREE weekly Happy Hours on Zoom. Past guests include Lindsey Stirling, Chris Thile, Caroline Shaw, etc and upcoming guests include Alan Menken, Elliot Goldenthal, and Augustin Hadelich/Orion Weiss live in recital tonight. You can register for any of them here!
Some things to know: - To date, we've held 43 free events since covid. It's the best decision we've made as an org - Seth Rogen performed on the very first Salastina concert - We got in trouble at a Star Wars session - We (the only five performers) once almost had to walk off-stage because we started laughing/crying after an audience member sneeze-farted twice during a performance - We commissioned a piece of music and recently invited the world to participate in the performance. There's still time!
