Professional Entertainers

The popular definition of professional artists is that they are paid for it. I would go a step further and say that professional artists are, above all, dedicated artists who love what they do and can somehow make a living from time to time.

The musical profession

It really is a very interesting and sometimes strange world, this world of the professional musician.

It contains those who are soloists, such as opera singers, recitals, concert performers, and conductors. It may be an exaggeration to call a conductor a soloist, but in many ways the description fits because he is the one in front of the rest of the artists.

Musicians who are not soloists include the orchestra musician, choir members, and chamber musicians, such as string quartets. Of course, all musicians are soloists in many ways, but we separated them in the previous way.

The interpretive ego

To be an interpreter of any description, it is essential to have an ego. Sometimes, of course, it can get so inflated that it gets in the way, but basically no one can function properly without an ego.

Ego satisfaction

Artists get their kicks and emotions in different and often individual ways. The soloist has the easy job due to the applause and the worship directed specifically at him / her.

Orchestral musicians enjoy doing the job well in particular and being part of an ensemble that produces good music. This ego satisfaction comes from within and with the feeling of doing a good job and providing real entertainment for the audience.

Choir members earn their rewards by doing individual work well and knowing that the choir contributes powerfully to overall performance.

Whatever the musician's place in the world of music, there is the ego that produces the best possible, and consequently offers real entertainment to the public.
