Meet our Principals
Seven performances, curated by seven HK Phil Principals.
The HK Phil proudly presents seven performances by the orchestra’s Principal Oboe Michael Wilson, Principal Viola Andrew Ling, Co-Principal Trumpet Christopher Moyse, Principal Clarinet Andrew Simon, Principal Bassoon Benjamin Moermond, Principal Flute Megan Sterling and Principal Timpani James Boznos.
In this special video series, our Principals share their personal musical pleasures in diverse genres with the audience. We bring you an extraordinary journey through the different sections of the orchestra – strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion. Immerse yourself in the music and meet our Principals! The videos will be premiered every other Tuesday on HK Phil’s online platforms. Get ready to be dazzled by these special performances!
Principal Timpani James Boznos in Recital
HK Phil Principal Timpani, James Boznos, is both a percussionist and composer. In this short recital, he will bring you a variety of music from composers ranging from J.S. Bach to Elliott Carter, as well as James himself. He will be performing on timpani, marimba and vibraphone, as well as teaming up with his wife, our piccolo player Linda Stuckey, and an MP3 PLAYER! Percussion does not have such a wide range of repertoire as other instruments, so percussionists sometimes play transcription of earlier composers, which allows us a refreshing taste of the great diversity of instruments in this section of the orchestra.
