The New York Philharmonic deeply mourns the passing of Carl R. Schiebler, Orchestra Personnel Manager, on December 22. A former orchestral horn player and veteran of the 7th Army Symphony, Carl came to the Philharmonic in 1986 and became a guardian and mentor, beloved for his big heart and gruff voice. His constant care for the musicians' welfare made him a beloved and respected figure among the entire Orchestra, Board, and Staff, as well as by four Music Directors and guest artists over three decades. All will miss Carl's almost daily call: "Ladies and Gentlemen, on stage. On stage, please." We extend deepest condolences to his wife, Noriko; his children and grandchildren; his brother and sister; and his legion of friends
