87-year-old Orin O’Brien never wanted the spotlight, but by being the first woman hired to the New York Philharmonic, it was inevitable. Now, in her retirement, she insists that her students and colleagues not make a fuss. As a double bassist, she prides herself on being the supporting role. Exploring Orin’s remarkable career as she transitions out of the competitive world of classical music, we live her words of wisdom that the key to enjoying life is to play second fiddle.
