Frajola sings and plays at the same time!
Every year, the Oregon Symphony opens its first regular classical music concert with the national anthem, and I noticed at the opening concert on Saturday evening that associate concertmaster Peter Frajola was singing the national anthem and playing it at the same time! I took a quick look at other members of the orchestra, but I didn't see anyone else doing this (of course, wind and brass players cannot do this feat), and perhaps Frajola has been doing this for years. In any case, kudos to Frajola!
