Exhibit at Diehn Composers Room
"Musical Heroes: A Tribute to Russell Stanger, Sidney Harth, and Benjamin Lees" is the title of a new exhibit at the Diehn Composers Room. All three men were outstanding examples of professional musicians. They were all passionate about sharing their music and taught young people for a good portion of their lives. They were not only teachers, however. Stanger was also a conductor and composer. Sidney Harth was a conductor and concertmaster of several American symphonies. Benjamin Lees was also a composer and is well known throughout the world for his symphonies and concertante. All three men have devoted their lives to sharing music with the world and this exhibit honors them -- especially since the musical world lost both Harth and Lees in the past year.
The exhibit is presented in honor of the John Duffy Composers Institute, which is sponsored by the Virginia Arts Festival. It is available for viewing through November at the Diehn Composers Room, 189 Diehn Fine and Performing Arts Center, from 8am-5pm, Monday through Friday.
Also be sure to view the Web exhibit.
