In advance of his multiple playing appearances here on the Eastern Shore (as part of the 28th Annual Chesapeake Chamber Music Festival), Kara Dahl Russell chats with Double Bass player Anthony Manzo about “the beast” he plays.   From detachable necks, to stick bodies, to sleek carbon fiber shaping, Kara and Tony “get physical” with one of the largest pieces of furniture in the orchestra.  Tony also talks about his extensive performance/travel career, what makes a good teacher, and what best prepares a student to have something to say, musically.
