From Scientist to Professional Trumpeter, Laura Garwin (Part 1)

From Scientist to Professional Trumpeter, Laura Garwin (Part 1)

This week, Kristin talks with Laura Garwin, who turned professional trumpet player at the age of 52.

Laura went from physics to geology to journalism, with a Rhodes scholarship along the way, but finally found that she was ready to make trumpet her full-time career. In this episode, we hear about her humble musical beginnings, her resistance to study physics in the footsteps of her famous father, and why geologists are more fun than some musicians.
