Ken Friedman - Vancouver Symphony principal

Discussion in 'Orchestral Auditions [DB]' started by Douglas.Nestler, Apr 14, 2009.

  1. I see that the Vancouver Symphony has a principal bass audition coming up. Does anyone know why Ken Friedman left? I played for him a few years ago; he seemed like a good teacher. I didn't think that he was of retirement age.

    The advert says he's played there for 39 years.

    personal reasons. I don;t know him personally but I would guess maybe health, maybe relationship, maybe moving, maybe he just felt like giving someone else a chance.
