    Nice to see low brass players getting some prize money. Congratulations to the Kings of the Bass Clef.

  • Nils Angmar says:

    His name is Jonathon Ramsay, not Jonathan Ramsey.
    I don’t know if he has taken a hiatus from the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra or if he is managing both, but he’s also an academist of the Berliner Philharmoniker’s Karajan Akademie since 2018.
