When Pacific Symphony Music Director Carl St.Clair was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the OC Music Awards last night at the Grove of Anaheim, he had some fans among the otherwise non-classical musicians being recognized. Best Indie band winner Young the Giant approached St.Clair after the ceremony. Bass player Payam Doostzadeh, who made sure he got a photo with Carl, was particularly excited to meet our Music Director, having grown up in Orange County and been taken to Pacific Symphony Classical Connections concerts in his youth. Payam was drawn to how Carl took apart the music and analyzed it, influencing him to approach other music with the same critical attention.
