Born in Chicago, Orrin was a pianist, teacher, music critic, and the much-loved annotator and director of publications for the LA Philharmonic, where his program notes have informed and enlightened concertgoers for more than 40 years. He was pre-deceased by his adored wife of 60 years, pianist and teacher Shirley Effenbach Howard. He will be deeply missed by his son David, daughter Myra, grandson Benjamin, and many other loving family members, friends, and former colleagues.
