Dvora Lewis (left) with Kathryn McDowell, 2015

With much sadness, I write to let you know that Dvora Lewis, the LSO’s greatly respected PR for 37 years until 2015 and Honorary Member of the LSO, passed away suddenly this morning.  She will be greatly missed, but we shall treasure the memory of a truly wonderful woman.  Her professionalism and her expertise were far ahead of its time, and her humanity touched everyone who knew her.  The email I received from her husband Michael this morning says it all. 

I am sorry to inform you that Dvora passed away from a heart attack in the Royal Free early this morning after having been admitted yesterday. She didn’t suffer.  After her family the LSO was the love of her life and I should like to thank you and all in the orchestra for the honour and pleasure that the LSO gave her over so many  years  She so enjoyed the Mendelssohn concerto on Sunday.
