If you’ve felt somewhat uncentered at Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra concerts in the past year, it might have been because the orchestra was trading oboe players like baseball cards in order to find just the right match. The RPO announced Thursday it found its new star pitcher (aka oboist) Erik Behr.

Behr, 28, will leave his position as principal oboist with the Houston Grand Opera and Houston Ballet, which he has held since 2005, to join the RPO.


The dominoes keep falling ….

(I’ve read that Jeffrey Stephenson will be taking the Houston jobs for the upcoming year.)
