Topic: RETIREMENT ANNOUNCEMENT. Bill Weilgus National Sym 2nd oboe

""""I am happy to say that at the end of the summer I will be retiring from my position with the National Symphony Orchestra. It's been an exciting and memorable 27 years but at this time of my life I have so many projects I want to pursue in my remaining years of playing. Now that I have the means to do so it's time to move on. For starters this year I have a dozen recitals planned around the world with 10 composers so far writing great music for me. Hopefully I will be playing somewhere near to wherever you are, and if not, invite me! I especially look forward to never playing ppp low C# in Dvorak again!""""
