From the London Symphony Orchestra:

The LSO was sad to hear of the death of former Principal Bass Clarinet John Stenhouse on 28 August 2016 at the age of 74.

John began his career in the BBC and English National Opera. He played as a freelance musician with all the major orchestras and ensembles before joining the LSO… He retired from the Orchestra in 2007.



  • Anthony Kershaw says:

    A fantastic teacher and coach, too. An incredible player.

  • Saria Kraft says:

    John Stenhouse was dearly loved. Warm and tender thoughts to his beautiful sister and her family — from Los Angeles.
