    Default Oboist trips, dies before concert

    A sad story.

    "A symphony oboe player in Florida died minutes before a season-opening concert performance was set to begin on Sunday after she fell down a flight of stairs, according to officials.

    "The Greater Miami Symphonic Band said on Facebook that Janice Thomson, 62, tumbled down a flight of stairs at the Maurice Gusman Concert Hall at the University of Miami in Coral Gables about 20 minutes before the season-opening concert."

    Full story here.

    That reminds me of the Michael Rabin story, who slipped on a freshly-waxed floor and hit his head on the edge of a table.

    "In Spring! In the creation of art it must be as it is in Spring!" -Arnold Schoenberg

    "We only become what we are by the radical and deep-seated refusal of that which others have made us." -Jean-Paul Sartre

    This could be in ''bizarre news''.
