One of the pleasures of working at OperaDelaware has been getting to know their regular maestro, Anthony Barrese. A meticulous and tireless artist, he has done a great service to the field by creating a large body of orchestral reductions. He is also a fellow composer. One of his favorite pastimes is go carts, something that was completely new to me. He has started a video podcast of interviewing conductors and taking them go carting.
You can watch the entire interview below, or here he samples my cart drive with my piano concerto as background.

I've previously shared some local stuff from the road such as the lawn jockeys in Saratoga, NY, and the signs in Amarillo.
