Jason Sudduth was the second oboist of San Jose Symphony (RIP). He’s now the English hornist of the Honolulu Symphony. I read a review just now in which second to last paragraph says this:

Shimada opened the program with Berlioz’s “Roman Carnival Overture,” a youthful work of operatic origins, filled with drama, melody, and rousing sentiment. In this, Shimada delivered both clarity and coherence, balanced ensemble highlighted by outstanding solos. Most memorable were Jason Sudduth’s extended lyric solo on English horn and the brass section’s final, ringing chord.

I’m not surprised, because Jason is one very fine player, but congrats, Jason!
