    “The official reason”? Are you implying there is some other reason?

  • Michael Evans says:

    The BEST reason! Did it myself from the BBCSO in 1959.

    Look at her bio :

    She doesn’t want to be an orchestral player forever !

  • Robert W says:

    She is now Assistant Principal of the RLPO so she has returned to orchestral playing.
