KSO Principal Horn Calvin Smith Dies

It was with sadness that we learned of the death of Knoxville Symphony Orchestra Principal Horn Calvin Smith last Sunday. I did not know Mr. Smith personally, but I knew I could count on his playing to be rich, solid, and luminous. Andy Bryenton, KSO Principal cellist, offered his thoughts on the KSO’s Blog.

In addition to the KSO, Smith was also the Principal Horn for the Long Beach Symphony and an Associate Professor of Music in the UT School of Music.
