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.
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.
All CAMTA teachers may select a total of two students from their studio to attend free of charge the concert by Piotr Anderszewski on October 22, 2017, at Symphony Center. The program will include Mozart Fantasy and Sonata in C Minor, Janáček On an Overgrown Path, Book II and Chopin Selected Works.
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 teacher should ask the student/parent prior to selection, and they need to commit to go. The age limit is eight years old through high school.
In order to prolong the program, free tickets to parents will be given only under special circumstances. Contact Terry Tennes with these requests. Otherwise extra tickets are available for $20 each.
Applications must be postmarked by Friday, October 1.
Please send the application form, a SASE, and one check made payable to CAMTA for any extra tickets requested to:
Terry Tennes, 508 Madison St., Apt 1S, Oak Park, IL 60302-4426
