It is with sad and heavy hearts that we announce that David Ellis, the ESO’s General Manager, passed away on July 26, 2022, following heart complications. Our sympathy and care go out to Marcia, his wife, and their sons, Michael, Matthew, and Peter, for the depth and pain of their loss.
David was our General Manager for 18 years. He knew all of our musicians and all of our patrons, including their seat numbers! His knowledge of classical music was second to none and his love of this music was always appreciated at our Musical Insights lectures.
