Richard Kessler, dean of the Mannes School of Music, has posted sad news of the death of Matthew Wiseman, a classical guitarist who played in all sorts of ensembles from early music to heavy metal.

Matt was recently named Assistant Director of the Fort Lee School of Music when he suffered a traumatic brain injury. A fund has been raised to pay for his hospital and funeral expenses.
