Music, Peace, Revolution and Joseph Eger

My friend Joseph Eger died this past weekend. Joe was an inspiring man, still leading a very active life at age 92. As recently as 2010, he traveled to San Francisco to conduct a concert there. And closer to home, he rehearsed and conducted students at the Durham School of the Arts this past year. He had moved to Durham only a few years ago, but made many new friends here.  I will miss him.

Below are a few links that provide a small glimpse into Joe’s life and career.
