Terry Morton (1934–2012)

First Violin (1966–1991); Personnel Manager (1991–1999)

The LSO was saddened to hear of the death of former LSO violinist Terry Morton on 15 January 2012.

Terry was born in Sheffield and studied the violin at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. He joined the LSO as a member of the Second Violin section in 1966 following nine years with the Hallé Orchestra.

In 1991 he put down his fiddle and became the Orchestra's Personnel Manager until his retirement in 1999. He served on the Board of Directors for ten years, becoming Chairman for a year in 1987.

Our thoughts are with his widow, Shirley, and his children at this sad time.
