Maybe this is old news, but I just ran across this, FYI:

Alex Klein, former principal oboe of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, has been named professor of oboe at Oberlin College in Ohio.

(As most oboists know, Mr. Klein had to step down from Chicago due to focal dystonia. This doesn’t mean he isn’t still playing; he was just unable, from all I’ve read, to play for as many hours a day as a symphony post like Chicago would require.)
