BURT HARA, Solo Clarinetist for 25 years in the Minnesota Orchestra,  WINS POSITION WITH LOS ANGELES PHILHARMONIC 

Minneapolis, Minnesota USA

         Today, we congratulate Burt Hara, one of the great orchestral clarinetists of our time, as he prepares to accept the position of Associate Principal Clarinet in the Los Angeles Philharmonic. In his 25 years as Principal Clarinet, Burt has been one of the shining stars of the Minnesota Orchestra. Last week in St. Paul, a packed house thrilled to his peerless performance of the Mozart Clarinet Concerto. More than a musician, his influence has been felt throughout the Twin Cities as a devoted teacher, generous donor, and community leader. Words cannot convey how much we will miss our beloved colleague and friend. He is truly irreplaceable. (Photo by
