Gene Ramsbottom received the North Shore's FANS 2015 Distinguished Artist designation for being recognized as Canada's most recorded classical clarinetist. He was appointed as founding principal clarinetist of the Vancouver Opera Orchestra by Richard Bonynge and performed in that role for twenty seasons until 1996. Mr. Ramsbottom was also the principal clarinetist since 1984 with the C.B.C. Radio Orchestra, Canada's internationally renowned recording national broadcast orchestra.

Of the many concert series he created the longest running one has been the Out For Lunch Friday noon hour concert series at the Vancouver Art Gallery which he created in 1986 as a Vancouver Centenary project. Currently he is the principal and solo clarinetist of the West Coast Symphony and the Summer Music on the Shannon (Ireland) Festival. Last August he performed in Shanghai with Vancouver String Quartet cellist Bo Peng in the Hong Mei Music Festival and looks forward to returning there to further concertize as an international chamber musician representing Canada.
