St. Paul, Minn. —
Danish recorder player Michala Petri has had a very long and very successful performance career. And naturally, there are a few moments that stick out in her memory as special. However, one moment is extra special — a moment she had when she was about 33 years old. That's when she was invited to join the late, great Victor Borge on stage in concert. Above, she talks about that experience. And you can watch the YouTube video, too. Don't forget to listen to Julie Amacher's New Classical Tracks for a sampling from Michala Petri's newest recording, English Recorder Concertos.
