The bassoonist who saved a concert hallmain
The Detroit Symphony Orchestra is in mourning for Paul Ganson, an assistant principal bassoon who headed the successful Save Orchestra Hall campaign in 1970.
‘Paul’s extraordinary impact on the DSO cannot be overstated,’ said the DSO. ‘He stands with Ossip Gabrilowitsch and very few others as a giant in the history of our orchestra. We literally would not be where we are today without Paul.’
Paul Ganson died last month, aged 80.
