Cobbs said he will tell Michael Brooks some interesting tales about Cobbs' past and also brag about some significant moments in the history of the Everett Symphony Orchestra before it became the Everett Philharmonic, especially highlighting performances in Vienna, Rome and New York.
During the month of January, King FM will celebrate Mozart's birthday and include Cobbs' five favorite works by the composer. There will also be a little "plug" for each piece to preview the Everett Philharmonic's upcoming Feb. 10 "Magnificent Mozart" concert.
"2012 was a great year for EPO. We could not have been so successful without the tremendous teamwork from every part of our organization," Cobbs said.
In addition to being music director for the Everett Philharmonic, Cobbs is guest conductor with the Sussex Symphony Orchestra in Brighton, England and music director for the Tacoma Youth Symphony Association. Cobbs is also a popular guest conductor who appears frequently with orchestras and ensembles in Europe, Asia and the United States, including Vienna's Festival Chamber Orchestra, members of the Dresden and Leipzig Opera, the Kamimura Wind Ensemble in Kagoshima, Japan and the Seattle Symphony, according to his bio.
In 2008, Cobbs received with his wife, Loma, the Lifetime Achievement Award from ArtsFund.
