"I Choose to Play." European Trumpeter Flourishes In Spite of COVID Restrictions (And How You Can Too)

**This interview aired originally on the Trumpet Dynamics podcast. I wanted to share here because what we talked about is very relevant to entrepreneurship in general. jn

Conversations like this inspire me to pick up my horn, turn on my iPhone camera and just hit "record" and see what happens.

Floris Onstwedder is a trumpet soloist based in The Netherlands and Switzerland. In normal circumstances, he plays the finest concert halls in the world with his stunning virtuosity and lyricism on the trumpet.

In "other than normal" circumstances, Floris remains undeterred from sharing his gifts with the world. And although the present conditions are far from optimal, he has discovered new ways to share his gifts and build a following around the world.

Here are a few highlights of the conversation between James Newcomb and Floris Onstwedder:

-Adjusting fire with coronavirus lockdowns...04:05

-A thorough smackdown of the "let's wait for the government to validate art" argument...13:43

-New opportunities to reach an audience thanks to the lockdowns...21:43
