Joseph Alessi Interview with the All-Star Orchestra

Joe Alessi is the principal trombonist of the All-Star Orchestra, a group comprised of some of the best symphonic musicians from around the United States. The orchestra meets once a year to record familiar and contemporary works in the hopes of educating and encouraging a greater appreciation of classical music.
