Kristen-BruyaThe ISB wants to send a little bass love out this week to ISB Life Member Kristen Bruya who starts her tenure as Principal Bassist for the Minnesota Orchestra today.

“It is truly an honor to join such an incredible and inspiring group of musicians. I moved here this past fall from Toronto, Ontario, to be with my husband, Andy Chappell, who started playing with the Orchestra on bass trombone. Winning a position in the same Orchestra as your spouse doesn’t happen very often, and is a dream come true, so I feel very lucky!!”

Feel free to add your well wishes to her below.
