English conductor wakes up to $8 million windfall

My friend William Boughton will be having a happy holiday.

His orchestra, the New Haven Symphony, has been left the income on 40 percent of a rich man’s estate, valued at just over $20 million.

William, who is working his way through recording Walton’s original orchestral scores which are archived at Yale, will be able to permit himself the extra rehearsal or two.

Good for him.
