Douglas Yeo, the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s bass trombonist, has announced that he will retire from the BSO at the end of next summer. He will also be stepping down from his faculty position at New England Conservatory and relocating to Goodyear, Ariz. Yeo joined the BSO in 1985, during the tenure of music director Seiji Ozawa. Over the years, he has performed and recorded widely outside of his work with the orchestra, developing a specialty in rare period brass instruments such as the serpent.
