Doublers in the news: Douglas Owens

October 3, 2008

A nice mention of my buddy and colleague Douglas Owens in the Durango, Colorado Telegraph. Photo, too. Doug was my fellow DMA student in multiple woodwinds at the University of Georgia, and has gone on to a new job at Fort Lewis College in Durango.

Oddly, his area of expertise is given as “bassoon, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, flute and bass clarinet.” Doug certainly does play all of those instruments well, but it seems strange to mention bass clarinet specifically (but not, say, English horn or piccolo). I’ve had the same thing happen to me—for some reason, people are anxious to count bass clarinet as a sixth woodwind separate from the clarinet.

Congratulations, Doug, on your new job and a nice profile in the local press!
