Performing music is a consuming profession. The mental concentration and physical precision and accuracy required are intense. And after thousands of hours in childhood spent mastering an instrument and many thousands more in rehearsals and performances, retirement can be an appealing prospect.

Yet, music is also a calling, and the decision to retire is not easy. Life after the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra has been good to musicians who retired in recent years. Some simply enjoy retirement, while others use the time to develop early but neglected enthusiasms, discover new professional activity or find a better balance in life.
