William Bennett, principal oboist of the San Francisco Symphony, passed away today
after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage while performing a concerto onstage.
The Strauss oboe concerto, which he was performing when he collapsed, "held a special place for him."
Bennett was an active teacher and performer in the Bay Area.
