The Donnie Moses Memorial Lecture and Performance Series

Initiated with funds generously donated by family and friends of the late Donnie Moses, this series will provide on-going educational opportunities for generations of music lovers. Each year the Moses Memorial Series will underwrite numerous pre-concert talks, two conversations with composers and performers, and a brunch/lecture prior to the Festival Finale concert.
