The Canadian Arts community is mourning the death of impresario Walter Homburger. As managing director of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra for 25 years, Homburger fostered the careers of acclaimed artists including Glenn Gould. Walter Homburger also presented esteemed international artists, including Louis Armstrong, and took the company on tours to such far-flung locales as China in 1978. In a tribute to Homburger on its website, the T-S-O describes him as “one of the most revered artistic administrators in Canadian musical history.” Walter Homburger was 95 years old.
