August 4, 2022: It is with reverence and love that we wish to acknowledge the passing of Dr. Gerald Mack, our Board member and director of our Downtown Concert Series. He was the recipient of our 2018 Merit Award. Gerry was known by many as "Maestro Extraordinaire." His music career led in many directions but he was known for his ability to lead many people into choral singing. His passion, expertise and willingness to explore the depths and heights of learning a masterwork were remarkable. He taught 27 years at Hartt College of Music and nurtured many music students through his inspiration.
