    So sorry to hear about the passing of an old friend. Chuck and I were conducting students together at NEC, worked together on several opera and G&S productions in the Boston area, and spent many hours schmoozing at Fenway Park. He was a good guy, I learned a lot about music and the infield fly rule from him. R.I.P.
