 Re: San Francisco Symphony's principal oboist collapses during solo

Sorry to resurrect a sad thread, but I thought some might be interested in William Bennett's family history, which I just learned about, by chance.

Mr. Bennett's father was a passionate and very accomplished amateur clarinet player. He was also a distinguished professor of physics at Yale. There are warm stories about his love of music in this link, and elsewhere on the web:

Mr. Bennett's sister Jean Bennett has garnered great acclaim recently for her pioneering and successful work on gene therapy. (Just Google if you are interested.)

A remarkable family that has shown the fruits of passion and commitment, regardless of the field.
