Former orchestra violinist homeless in Portland
Two reports, one from KATU and the other from Slipped Disc, have mentioned that a classically trained violinist has lost all of his possessions in a car fire in SE Portland. It looks like he is David Wright, who played for 28 years with the Minnesota Orchestra. He was apparently a casualty of the lockout that the orchestra went through a couple of years ago. If you look at the comments in Slipped Disc, you will find some more information.
