The Detroit Symphony Orchestra is crowing at having grabbed principal flute David Buck from the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
The reasons for the move are unexplained. Maybe all the sunshine, the orange juice and the wonderful Disney Hall just got too much for a player who’d always wanted to work in Motown. Who knows? Maybe his name was Buick all along.
Buck, 30, from Philadelphia, was named #1 flute of the LA Phil by Gustavo Dudamel in 2010.
