Bells Up! An Interview with Bill Eich

Our musical director Matilda Hofman interviews Bill Eich, the principal French Horn player of the Diablo Symphony Orchestra for over forty years. Bill reminisces on how to he came to play the French Horn and his experience playing under pioneering conductor Antonia Brico, who was the first woman conductor of both the Berlin Philharmonic and the New York Philiharmonic, and was also personally invited by Jean Sibelius to conduct the Helsinki Symphony Orchestra. The DSO will be performing two works by Sibelius at our Kindred Spirits concert at Lesher Center on May 22, 2016.
