    We celebrate the life of our dear colleague Douglas Sommer who passed away this morning. Doug played in the bass section of the ASO for 25 years but was more to the musicians than just one member of our large family. He was a respected leader who we all counted on for support during our most challenging times. We'll remember him for his great musicianship, his "Hey, man" greetings, his cool demeanor and his warm friendship. Peace be with his lovely family, Phyllis, Gracie and Andrew.

    A great friend of mine took from him... He sounded like an incredible teacher and human being.

    He will be sorely missed.
