When Elmer Booze walks on stage for a virtuoso piano performance, nobody applauds. Although he has music degrees from two universities, Elmer has been content to sit in the shadows. He is a regular in Washington DC, at Kennedy Centre and the National Gallery of Arts USA. He has performed at the White House and at concerts in New York and London.
That’s because he is a professional page turner.
Great pianists depend on people like Elmer to make their performances the best it can be. While the virtuosos take their bows to the applause of thousands, the Elmers of this world are willing to smile… content with just the part they had.
