Eric Abramovitz had been training for this moment for nearly his entire life: the opportunity to study under one of the best clarinet teachers on the planet, on a full-ride scholarship to a prestigious music conservatory in Los Angeles.

This story is bonkers. I sent it to my violinist girlfriend and she read the entire thing slack-jawed.
