The McLean Symphony of Virginia has reported the death of Dingwall Felury, its founder in 1972. Dingwall was 82.

As a young man, Dingwall conducted the Baltimore and St Louis Symphony orchestras, but he was never considered as music director material by major organisations, possibly because of his race.

He was greatly cherished in McLean and remained music director of its orchestra to the day he died.
