Age v health…wind players…SD reply

With wind players, health and conditioning may be of more importance than age.  The health of the Principal Flute I studied with declined due to a serious heart attack even though the individual were still in their prime.  In that case, there was also substance abuse, which of course added an element of unpredictability to any performance.
