We hear that the prodigious Michael Winfield, who played oboe on Strawberry Fields Forever, has died.
Mike played oboe and cor anglais in the Halle and London orchestras for almost half a century. He taught oboe at the Royal College of Music, in London, and was hugely influential on three generations of players.
The funeral will be at 12.30 on Friday September 22 at St.Mary’s church. Causeway, Horsham RH12 1HE.
