Charles Noble has the scoop on OSO and FearNoMusic cellist, Adam Ebensen, winning a position with the Boston Symphony. Congratulations to Ebensen! Not only will he be playing with a world-famous orchestra, but he will get a major boost in pay. I think that the starting salary with the Boston Symphony is something like $105,000 a year.
On a more somber note, Seattle Symphony's principal cellist, Josh Roman, is leaving the SSO to pursue an independent career. You can read about it in Classical in Seattle or catch this article in The Seattle Times.
