Locked in the boiler room at Carnegie Hall: A conversation with Pam Shaffer Reinhard and Bill Kuyper

Leora Zeitlin

Las Cruces boasts numerous top quality musicians, including several retirees from major orchestras who continue to share their musical talents with the community. Pamela Shaffer Reinhard, retired violinist from the Minnesota Orchestra, and L. William Kuyper, retired horn player from the New York Philharmonic, met here in Las Cruces, and have now formed the Southwest Trio, with Palm Springs-based pianist Robert Miller.  They came to KRWG to speak with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin about an upcoming concert, as well as to share some nightmarish anecdotes being locked in the boiler room at Carnegie Hall and falling asleep during a rehearsal with Leonard Bernstein.
