Logo for On the Record hosted by Sarah Kienle

On the Record is a series of podcasts hosted by Sarah Kienle, Acting Associate Principal Viola of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. In these informal conversations, Sarah asks other DSO musicians what specific pieces of music inspires them. So far, we’ve heard everything from Mozart to Madonna. She also digs deep and shares behind-the-scenes insights into the technical aspects of being a member of an orchestra.

We love this series because it gives us an intimate glimpse into the music makers of the Dallas Symphony in a way we haven’t heard before.
