Clarinetist/Bass Clarinetist Don Ambler, Retired from the
Denver Symphony and Director of the Colorado Clarinet Choir for 40 years,
honored by both the Clarinet Choir and the Colorado Symphony
Denver, Colorado USA
A heartfelt tribute to one of the most influential Clarinetists and Teachers and
member of the Denver Symphony as Bass Clarinetist for over 30 years, and
founder/Director of the Colorado Clarinet Choir for 40 years, was honored by
both organizations at a special event held 11 December before a multitude of
former students and professionals who came especially to this event. As
the hyperlinked article here linked indicates, the accolades speak for
themselves. It is hoped, like so many other great influences as teachers
in the Clarinet Community that he like the others will not be forgotten.
