From Baltimore Symphony Orchestra:
It is with heavy hearts that we acknowledge the passing of friend and former BSO musician Bonnie Lake. Bonnie was a member of the flute section for 47 years, playing from 1957-2004.
Her former BSO colleague Laurie Sokoloff remembers her in the following words: “Never late, always prepared….She was always first in welcoming new orchestra members, offering a wide variety of very helpful information….Bonnie was extraordinary.”
Bonnie was a treasured member of the BSO for nearly 50 years and our condolences go out to Bonnie’s family and friends.
