Lament for a Mahler mavenmain
Jerry Fox, longtime president of the American Mahler Society, a kindly man who wore vast knowledge lightly, is no more. Jerry travelled far and wide in search of Mahler, was pre-concert speaker at the Boulder MahlerFest and was generally a very good guy. Our sympathies to his family.
It is with sadness that we announce the death of President Emeritus Gerald S. Fox, known as Jerry, on Sunday, August 23, 2015, after a long illness. Jerry was the second President of the Society, from 1987 until 2009. He was a leading Mahler authority, giving lectures and writing many reviews of Mahler recordings for American Record Guide.
Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, August 26 at 11 am at Gutterman’s Memorial Chapel, 8000 Jericho Turnpike, Woodbury, Long Island, NY.
