Remembering Composer Joseph Pehrson

Monday, April 6, 2020 11:12 AM

Dear members,

We have received the sad news that Joseph Pehrson passed away last Friday at Jacobi Hospital in the Bronx.  He had been living at the Pinnacle Nursing Home for a while, and was taken to the hospital because he had taken a turn for the worse.  Unfortunately, it was too late.

Joseph had been a member for many years, and he was also a key person in the Composers Concordance and other organizations.  We will try to dedicate a concert to him in the coming season, when we can organize some kind of memorial.


Emeritus Professor Hubert S. Howe, Jr.
