Principal Oboe (1953–1986)
The LSO is sad to hear of the death of former Principal Oboe Roger Lord on Thursday 19 June 2014. He had recently celebrated his 90th birthday and until then had been in very good health and enjoying life to the full.
Roger joined the LSO in 1953 as Principal Oboe. He was part of the famous resignation of Principals in 1955* but happily was persuaded to re-apply for his membership. He retired to Dorset in 1986, but remained an Associate Member until 1988.
