WORCESTER PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

STATEMENT – 11th August 2017

As Chairman of the Worcester Philharmonic Orchestra it is with deep regret and sadness that I write to inform you all of the death of our Vice President, former Chairman, fellow musician and good friend Ian Pattison.

Ian had been battling with ill health for some time, particularly after a mild stroke earlier this Summer. In recent weeks Ian became gravely ill and died peacefully in his sleep at 5.00 am this morning at Fernhill Heath Nursing Home, Worcester.

Ian devoted his life to music and the church, in particular the Worcester Philharmonic Orchestra and St.George’s Church, Barbourne. Through music Ian touched many people’s lives, especially as a trumpeter, singer, choir-master and conductor.

This is how Ian would like to be remembered by his wide circle of friends and musical colleagues. Through the sadness Ian leaves a legacy of happy memories.

Our thoughts are with his family at this time, particularly his mother and sister Jean.
