Woody Allen’s Woodwind (01/28)

So I was looking for images of Woody Allen for a project at work and wouldn’t ya know it – I learned something new!

Woody Allen plays the clarinet and joined the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the New Orleans Funeral Ragtime Orchestra in performances that provided the film score for his 1973 comedy Sleeper.

But that wasn’t enough for me, so I decided to find out about other unknown (to me) actor/musicians.

Here is a list:

Charlie Chaplin played the accordion.

Bob Hope played the saxophone.

Dustin Hoffman and Anthony Hopkins play the piano.

Meryl Streep plays the violin.

and last but certainly not least,

Alyssa Milano plays the clarinet AND oboe.
