I received this news via Delmar Williams and the IDRS. I’ll have to look for nay articles about his retirement later, as I have to leave for work!

Oboist Jim Gorton is retiring in July 2012 after 41 years with the Pittsburgh Sym. He, along with his wife Gretchen Van Hoesen and daughter Heidi Van Hoesen Gorton, will celebrate his career by playing the Goosens “Concert Piece for Oboe, Two Harps and Orchestra” in Jim’s final subscription concerts with the Pittsburgh Symphony.
