(Vessie Minkova)

Vessie Minkova, principal bassoonist for the KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra sadly passed away on November 26.

One-time member Charles Grey published the sad news on Facebook offering his deepest condolences to her husband, Lubo Minkov (also a KZNPO member), family and friends.

“I met Vessie and Lubo during the late 80's early 90's when they joined the KZNPO. What an awesome and friendly couple. Rest in peace, Vessie - you will be seriously missed.”
