Jack Budrow on the Podcast
This weekend, we’ll be releasing the first installment of our interview with Michigan State University and Interlochen Arts Academy bass professor Jack Budrow. Jack has had an illustrious performing career as a member of the Houston Symphony, Santa Fe Opera Orchestra, and as Principal Bass of the North Carolina Symphony. He has taught at Michigan State University for the past 12 years and at Interlochen for the past 30 years, and his former students perform in major orchestras worldwide.
Co-host John Grillo and I had a great chat with Jack for a couple of hours last week, and we’ll be breaking this interview into two segments just like we’ve done for many of our longer conversations. Stay tuned this weekend for the release of this quite interesting interview with Jack Budrow!
