|Anita Mitterer, Violist for Quatuor Mosaïques|
However, I have found most traveling musicians to be resourceful and highly adaptable. I would even say “zen-like”: to maintain their sanity, they have learned to go with the flow, to adapt to the situation at hand … to live in the moment. I have yet to hear one whine about their lot in life, although they will sometimes admit they are a little tired. Not too tired to do a little sight-seeing.
One travel companion that has become ubiquitous is the phone camera. Convenient and surprisingly high quality, the phone camera is revolutionizing photography. As Chase Jarvis wrote in 2009, The Best Camera Is The One That's With You: iPhone Photography. The market for iPhone books is pretty crowded.

Quatuor Mosaïques performs tonight at the Neurosciences Institute. There isn’t a bad seat in that hall and it’s not too late to order your tickets and have them ready for you at the door. I’ll be at the ticket table, so say hi.I called the phone camera the traveling musicians “second-best friend.” What do you think their “best friend” is?
