Late Nov dusk light filtered by a ash trees of Central Park. Families reclined on a Winter Park grass to listen to a a Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra “Holiday Pops” Concert.

The opening — that enclosed a exegesis of “A Visit from St. Nicholas,” set to orchestral accompaniment — is one of dual giveaway concerts for Central Florida residents any year. Orlando Philharmonic Executive Director David Schillhamer credits them to someone he considers “a hulk of a tellurian being.”

Kenneth Murrah, first partner of Murrah Doyle Wigle Torre P.A., was a profession who ensured that a Charlotte Hollander trust was enclosed to a Orlando Philharmonic. Murrah’s bequest was a work he was so ardent about.

Orlando and Winter Park are dusted by a fingerprints of Murrah, who died Dec. 5 from prostate cancer. He was 81.
