The sister of Jonathan Dlouhy, principal oboe of the Atlanta Symphony from 1979 to 2006, has posted word of his death last week of a cardiac infarction.
Susan Dlouhy writes: ‘My brother, Jon, passed away in his home in Atlanta, Georgia last week. He had a sudden cardiac incident and died peacefully. He was only 61. Jon was a gifted musician, an avid reader and a huge baseball fan. He was packing to move to Columbus to be closer to Peg Dlouhy and I when he died. He is also survived by his daughter Elizabeth Dlouhy, also from Atlanta. Memorial services will be private.
