Message from the Chamber Orchestra of Europe:

All of COE’s thoughts are with Håkan Björkman (principal trombone) who is undergoing surgery today to rebuild his face after a cycling accident last week. Get well soon Håkan!

  • Robert Holmén says:

    Well, possibly “face” had nothing to do with his embouchure but that sounds bad for a wind player none-the-less.

  • William Safford says:

    I just searched for more details, including on the orchestra website, and found nothing.

    How is his embouchure?

    Was he on a bicycle or motorcycle?

  • Bruce says:

    Any word on how things are going?
