Classic Arts News   Atlanta Symphony's Principal Oboist Steps Down
Jonathan Dlouhy, the principal oboist of the Atlanta Symphony for the last 27 years, will step down at the end of the current season, the orchestra announced.

"I've had a wonderful time performing with the orchestra and I will miss making music with them," Dlouhy said, "but after 27 years I'm also anxious and excited for a new direction in my life."

Music director Robert Spano said, "It is always difficult to lose such a long-standing, dedicated, and important member of this great orchestra."

Dlouhy studied at the Cleveland Institute of Music, where he was a prot_g_ of oboist John Mack, and performed with the Toronto Symphony and the National Symphony before joining the ASO in 1979.
