Seattle Symphony clarinetist moves over to Cleveland Orchestra
Musical America reported today that Benjamin Lulich will be leaving the principal clarinet position at the Seattle Symphony to take over the same post at the Cleveland Orchestra. Apparently, Franklin Cohen has resigned from the position at the CO because of differences with the orchestra's MD Franz Welser-Möst. Interestingly, Cohen was one of Lulich's teachers at the Cleveland Institute of Music.
