Billy Hestand Resigns Position With Cleveland Orchestra
Billy Hestand has resigned as Second Bassoonist with our orchestra. His resignation caught all of us by surprise. He did a good job adapting to the orchestra and playing second bassoon.
Billy is an excellent musician and an easy person to work with. We will miss him around here! He has left to resume his career in New York.
We hope to use Phil Austin (recently retired Second Bassoonist) as a substitute this year. I'm sure an audition will be scheduled at some point this year.
