“Susan Wulff’s life was profoundly impacted when the San Diego Symphony had to cancel its 2020 spring, summer and fall concert seasons because of the coronavirus pandemic,” writes George Varga in Sunday’s (11/15) San Diego Union-Tribune. “The orchestra’s associate principal bassist … has kept … busy exploring new creative vistas, in particular video editing.… Like San Diego Symphony Music Director Rafael Payare and CEO Martha Gilmer, Wulff is hopeful The Shell—the orchestra’s yet-to-open $45 million outdoor concert venue—will give it a major advantage in adapting to safe, socially distanced performances…. ‘I’m on the symphony’s social media team, which has been curating projects and putting them together to keep us valid and in the public eye,’ she said. Wulff … produced and edited [a] video featuring performances by bassists from 16 U.S. orchestras, including her…. It was created to fuel support for … Defend Arts Workers Now, [a] proposed $43.85 billion government relief fund.” Said Wulff, “The video has been shared over 20,000 times.… I want to help remind people of the joy music brings to their lives and also give them a platform to help arts organizations of all sizes.”
