The performance life of a symphony musician requires complete professional perfection. Their rigorous days are spent responding to the singular interpretation of conductors and music directors, so when it's time to unwind many choose leisurely hobbies.

Still, others can't get away from playing more music. Sharon Litwin finds out why on this week's Notes from New Orleans.

New Orleans is now home to the brand-new Birdfoot Chamber Music Festival, which is garnering attention from musicians across the globe.

We go Inside the Arts as three days of concerts kick off this inaugural fest, with performances tonight at the Old U.S. Mint in the French Quarter.
