SPCO Welcomes New Musicians

Posted at 11:30 AM on September 11, 2009 by Gillian Martin

The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra welcomes two new musicians to their ranks today.

Violinist Sunmi Chang fills one of the two violin positions that have been open since 2006.

Cellist David Huckaby fills the position vacated by the retirement of Daryl Skobba in 2007.

Ms. Chang and Mr. Huckaby jump right in. They'll both play in tonight's season opening concert with Douglas Boyd conducting Beethoven's famous Fifth Symphony.

(Mr. Boyd, by the way, gives his last concerts as an SPCO Artistic Partner this month. At six years, he is the longest serving Artistic Partner to date.)
