Bassist Matt Heller named as one of Alberta’s 50 Most Influential People

It makes me incredibly happy to see double bassist Matt Heller named as one of Alberta’s 50 most influential people!  Matt and I go way back–we did the American Russian Youth Orchestra ad Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival together in the late nineties, and we have kept in touch during his time in Chicago and now Canada as a bassist in the Calgary Philharmonic.

Matt is an active writer and has served as president of the Organization of Canadian Symphony Musicians.  He also appeared on a Contrabass Conversations episode several years ago.  He’s a great guy and is a great choice for this list.
