We regret to share news of the death of Emanuel Borok, concertmaster of the Moscow Philharmonic 1971-3, of the Israel Chamber Ensemble 1973-4, of the Boston Pops 1974-85 and enduringly of the Dallas Symphony, 1985-2010.
Manny was 75 and had been ill for the past year.
His daughter Sarah has posted: January 4th, 1:48am, 2020, my dad, Emanuel Borok, passed away, surrounded by his children and wife. Details on memorial service in Dallas, TX will follow soon. Please feel free to share memories, or any feelings on this post. Rest in Peace, Pap. You are larger than life, and I love you so very very much.

A superb musician, generous with his knowledge and his time, Manny was often in touch with Slipped Disc with wry observations on the state of the music world. He was a good man who will be greatly missed.
