Marcia Lotter’s Tales of the Festival.”  Ms. Lotter lives in Gualala, but earned a seat in the Santa Rosa Symphony in 1978, and has been making the round trip of 150 miles ever since.  She co-hosts a weekly classical music program on KZYX with Alan Kendall, is concertmaster of the Symphony of the Redwoods and has been an associate concertmaster of the Mendocino Music Festival.  The “Tales of the Festival” are stories told from the perspective of a Festival orchestra violinist.
