The Music of John Lessard: A Tribute Concert

Thursday, October 22 8 pm

Recital Hall, Staller Center for the Arts

Many of Jack Lessard’s scores can be found in the Music Library.  His career as a highly regarded composer spanned 60 years, and he was a founding member of the Department of Music, where he taught from 1962 to 1990.  Students, alumni and faculty will come together to honor him in a recital of his music, which will include many of his songs and works for percussion, guitar and woodwind quintet.  The concert will feature a special guest artist, soprano Tony Arnold, in a performance of Lessard’s 1984 work Pond in a Bowl.  Other performers include Tory Browers, Dominic Donato, George Fisher, Eduardo Leandro, Steve Paysen, Jerry Willard and members of the Stony Brook Contemporary Chamber Players.
