S07 Ep06: What’s In A Name?
October 8, 2022
“For what’s in a name? Would not that which we call a rose by any other name smell as sweet?” – William Shakespeare, Romeo & Juliet
How does an ensemble choose their name? That’s the question posed this week. A painter, a nun, even a comic strip, all inspired these ensembles.
