In Memoriam George Shangrow

Well-known Seattle Conductor George Shangrow, was killed in an automobile accident Saturday, while traveling to the Methow Valley Chamber Music Festival to give a pre-concert lecture on American classical music.

Founder of the Seattle Chamber Singers and Orchestra Seattle, Maestro Shangrow was also a frequent guest conductor at the Seattle Symphony and hosted the famous "Live by George" show on KING-FM.

Many current Seattle Symphony members remember both Maestro Shangrow, and his radio show, very fondly. We will all miss this popular figure in our Seattle musical community.
