Local Musicians to Play Live Music for Guests at LeMay – America’s Car Museum on Saturday, October 24

Northwest Sinfonietta members to provide “socially distant,” but live music at Tacoma museum

Submitted by LeMay – America’s Car Museum

In a time when musicians are having difficulty finding an audience and audiences can’t find live music, LeMay – America’s Car Museum in Tacoma will host two members of the Northwest Sinfonietta – Bassoonist John Ruze and flutist Jeannie Hill – to play background music for its patrons. Ruze and Hill will be performing from the balcony of the Museum, overlooking the main gallery, socially distanced from visitors.

John Ruze and Jeannie Hill are partners in music and in life, living in Lakewood, Wash., and members of the Northwest Sinfonietta, where they met and fell in love.
