Episode 3: The Family Show
This episode we chat with Eastman alums Kate Maroney and Red Weirenga, current DMA student Anna Lenti, and your host – Stephen Biegner – about what it was like starting a family while continuing to maintain a professional career. What were their careers like before; how did they meet and make it work as gigging musicians; are their lives vastly different after having a kid?
The interview was recorded back in late May, but due to COVID and furloughs, it’s taken a little time to actually pull this together. Kate and Red are still here in Rochester, and we actually discovered two small corrections: 1.) Vincent Rose is Anna’s great grandfather; 2.) Kate and Anna actually met at Eastman where they had a church job together; however, they did also gig together in NYC when Anna was a Westminster.
