The Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s newly hired principal oboist Alexander Kinmonth has a lot to do before he takes his place next fall at the center of the wind section on stage at Orchestra Hall.
He’s got a two-month summer gig at the Tanglewood Music Center in Massachusetts and a week at the Mainly Mozart Festival in San Diego. Of course, he also has to relocate to Detroit and find a place to live. Oh, and one more thing:
He has to graduate from college.
I remembered the name when I saw it in the article. Yep … saw him on a YouTube video back in 2007!
