17-year-old double bassist Draylen Mason has been killed – following a series of package bomb explosions in Austin, Texas, United States.
An honor roll bass student at the East Austin College Prep, where he studied with William Dick, Mason was a member of the Interlochen Center for the Arts, the Austin Youth Orchestra and the Austin Soundwaves and held the first chair for all of them as a senior.
Mason had been accepted to the University of Texas’ Butler School of Music and was preparing to attend the college next year.
Condolences to the family and friends of our lost bass brother.
