Episode Info:

Janet Horvath was the Associate Principal cellist of the Minnesota Orchestra for 32 years and is the author of Playing (Less) Hurt: An Injury Prevention Guide for Musicians. She has been a passionate advocate for musicians' health since the 1980s and has played an important role in building bridges between the the musical and medical fields and in improving working conditions for orchestral musicians. In this conversation we talk about how Janet became interested in this field following her own over-use injury during her graduate studies and about the process of writing her book at a time when there was very little awareness around musicians' health issues. We also discuss Janet's more recent experience with a severe hearing injury and the impact this has had on her life and career.
