Eric K (a.k.a. Eric Kujawsky) established Redwood Symphony in 1985 after receiving his Doctorate in Conducting from Stanford in 1985. His teachers have included Samuel Krachmalnick, Paul Vermel and Andor Toth. He has performed with the Aspen Music Festival, several Bay Area orchestras and choruses, and with TheatreWorks in Palo Alto, Ramshead Productions at Stanford, and the Cañada College Drama Department. Dr. K made his Davies Symphony Hall debut with Redwood Symphony and the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus in June of 1996. He is equally at home with symphony, opera, musical comedy or jazz, and is recognized as one of the Bay Area's foremost conductors.
Eric K has dropped his original name, "Kujawsky," because of the nearly universal difficulty in spelling and pronunciation — except with native Polish speakers!
