In a recent OnMilwaukee.com brief, we told you that Milwaukee cellist Janet Schiff was asked to audition via YouTube to perform with musical group Foo Fighters at the upcoming Grammy Awards. Unfortunately, she was not chosen to perform with them.
“Don't look for me on the Grammys,” reads an e-mail from Schiff. “The official word: I will be fashionably not there. The Grammy committee and Foo Fighters have chosen other cellists. Better ones? Yes. More determined? Unlikely.”
However, the good news is that 1,900 people visited her Web site and an orchestra in Atlanta asked permission to perform two of her pieces, “Sonata” and “War Tango.”
“I am in the process of notating for them,” says Schiff.
Molly Snyder started writing and publishing her work at the age 10, when her community newspaper printed her poem, "The Unicorn.” Since then, she's expanded beyond the subject of mythical creatures and written in many different mediums but, nearest and dearest to her heart, thousands of articles for OnMilwaukee.
Molly is a regular contributor to FOX6 News and numerous radio stations as well as the co-host of "Dandelions: A Podcast For Women.” She's received five Milwaukee Press Club Awards, served as the Pfister Narrator and is the Wisconsin State Fair’s Celebrity Cream Puff Eating Champion of 2019.
