Where's Don Prell?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [DB]' started by Paul Warburton, Nov 19, 2004.


  1. I'm looking for an old friend of mine who was with the San Francisco Symphony for many years. His name is Don Prell. He was in the bass section. I tried to visit the orchestra's site, but it wouldn't totally load for me.
    He recorded and played with Bud Shank back in the 60's.
    During two times I lived in the bay area, we would hang alot. He had many wonderful basses and was a fun guy.
    If anyone knows his where abouts, please PM me.....Thanks!

  3. Thanks man....I guess this is a spin off of the regular orchestra. At least he's still alive and playing principal, at least in this group.
    I dropped him an email. Where'd you get the phone # and mail? Being it's a Palm Springs address, it's probably not him.
    Thanks again.

    Paul, I know I emailed you about Don Prell one time recently. Are you still looking for him? He's still here in SF.

    EDIT: I should say I can try to get his contact info for you if you wish.
