Concert to honor Liepmann

"You will never believe how much enthusiasm, talent and skill exist among young Americans, especially among those whose mental curiosity and searching minds drive them to study science and engineering, until you have given them opportunities to make music in their free time," wrote Professor Klaus Liepmann (1907-1990), MIT's first first full-time professor of music and the founder of MIT's music program.

The MIT Concert Choir will stage a memorial concert to MIT's "Father of Music" on Friday, Nov. 20 in Kresge Auditorium. Conducted by William Cutter, the choir will perform Haydn's The Seasons with Maynard Gold-man, concertmaster; and Diana Hoagland, Mark Evans and Mark Andrew Cleveland.
