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. With your support, this program will continue to deepen our appreciation of music for years to come.

P. Donald Moses was a man of many passions. He loved the practice of law, running, golf, literature, poetry, fly fishing, wine, baseball – and Beethoven. He pursued each interest with intensity, driven to experience new works of music and literature and then discover what scholars had to say about them. He was especially moved by Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.  His is a story of how music can influence an ordinary man leading an ordinary life, of how it can bring joy and a depth of experience to anyone, not just the talented and the trained. In that spirit of inspiring personal growth, the Moses Memorial Fund seeks to offer education and exposure to many forms of music – the familiar as well as the more inaccessible.
