I am so humbled that the Wall Street Journal took interest in my Delta airline saga. Recently, one of their reporters, Scott McCartney, wrote an article about not only my ordeal but about how cellists and other musicians are having an increasingly difficult time at some airlines when flying with instruments.
As an added bonus to the article, they came up with the terrific idea of attaching a tiny video camera to my cello case in order to capture what Mr. Cello sees during a typical airport visit. In this instance, I was on my way to Boston to premier Augusta Read Thomas’ Cello Concerto No. 3 with the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
Although security restrictions prevented the camera from capturing anything past the security checkpoints, it did manage to get some good footage. Here’s the entire Wall Street Journal segment with some of the Cello Cam video:
