We were so excited to interview percussionist Maria Finkelmeier that we forgot to keep count of the questions. Read on for Maria's answers to #10Questions (plus a few extras).
What is your profession?
Percussionist / Founder of Kadence Arts
Where do you live?
When I first moved to Boston in 2012, I started asking, "how can I meet cool arts people?" Opus Affair was the answer from so many! It was a great way to begin to engage with the community here in Boston!Favorite Opus Affair memory?
When Make Music Boston won a Punch Bowl event. We loved chatting with everyone and were so stoked about the energy and excitement for the festival!
What's a cool project you're currently working on?
My artist collective, Masary Studios, has been commissioned by the Boston Center for the Arts to create a site specific piece for the Cyclorama. It'll feature new percussion music, sculptures, and projection! Mark you calendars for March 2017!
What's your current favorite Boston bar or restaurant?
Sportello will always have my heart and my belly!
When I was little, I could do a mean Elvis Presley impersonation. Curled lip and everything.What does it mean to live a creative life?
It means to live fully and attempt to answer questions for yourself and those around you. It's a responsibility and a challenge. It's full of ups and downs, and success reflects how you handle each one. I am powered by the next creative idea!
What would your fantasy superpower be and why?
Flight, so I could cut down on my travel costs.
