Shifrin Steps Down From Lincoln Center Chamber Music

After 12 years, David Shifrin steps down as director of the Chmaber Music Society of Lincoln Center. “New York’s loss may be Portland’s gain. Shifrin is a familiar figure here, having directed the city’s Chamber Music Northwest festival each summer since 1980. By shedding his New York position, he will be able to devote more time to Portland as well as to his solo career as a clarinet player, to his family (he has a 10-year-old son) and to teaching music at Yale University.”
