1. What do great musicians do in their spare time? If you’re violist Steven Tenenbom, who’s performing tonight and tomorrow morning in 92Y’s Chamber Music at 92Y series, you’re a dog breeder. Together with his wife, violist Ida Kavafian, who also frequently appears at 92Y, Steven breeds raises and shows champion purebread Vizsla dogs. In 2003, their dog Billie (named for Billie Holiday) was the #1 Vizsla in the US. She won the Sporting Dog group at the National Dog Show, broadcast by NBC, and she appeared at the Westminster Dog Show. Want to see more of Billie? Here you go.  See and hear Steven in his “other” job tonight and tomorrow, playing Stravinsky, Beethoven and Fauré.
