Phil enjoyed the piano series whether hearing a famous or almost famous performer.  As the founder of CAMTA’s program to obtain discounted tickets for the piano series, Phil believed that the future of concerts depends on youthful attendance now.

Phil had a special ability to teach a very wide variety of students.  You may choose a student because he or she has never been to a concert, has worked especially hard, is interested in majoring in music, or for any reason you think is worthy.

The fund was begun in his honor as he was president of CAMTA for many years and built our membership with his curiosity for learning about music and people.  He was one of the first to get an Apple IIe computer and took it with him when teaching in students’ homes.  He would call and discuss what was on his mind such as should he call a chord a C6 or am7.  Phil died while waiting for his next student.  His encouragement and acceptance of new ideas made him an ideal leader.

Leif Ove Andsnes is the artist chosen performing Sunday, January 27, 2019, 3:00 pm, at Symphony Center. The program will include Schumann Blumenstück, Op. 19, Janáček On An Overgrown Path, Book I, Chopin Ballade No. 3, Bartók Three Burlesques, Schumann Carnaval, Op. 9.

“Andsnes is not just a superb pianist, with one of the finest techniques one will witness, but is one of the most interesting musicians on the classical scene”(New York Classical Review).
