The death of Richard Chester was announced by The Royal Scottish National Orchestra. They said:
“A passionate supporter of music education, Richard performed in the Orchestra from the late 1960s until mid-1980s before becoming Chief Executive of The National Youth Orchestras of Scotland – NYOS. Through his tireless work and dedication as a performer, educator, administrator and patron, Richard’s influence reaches many generations of musicians. We send our sincere condolences to those nearest to him at this sad time.”
Deeply saddened by this news. Richard was a trustee of SScOT for over 25 years. His passion for music education was boundless, and his inspirational leadership had a huge impact on our development, as it did on every organisation he was involved with. He will be very much missed. https://t.co/8mjDBSZhsX
