Leo Driehuys, conductor of the Charlotte Symphony from 1977-93, has died at his home in Midlothian, VA. It was he who presided over the transformation of the orchestra from a small per-service operation to a more or less full time ensemble of 60 players. The Charlotte Observer has a more complete account of his life and work; see https://www.charlotteobserver.com/entertainment/arts-culture/article234253652.html.
