From the Maestro’s Desk

Dear Friends,

As I approach my eightieth year, I am honored by the determination of my colleagues to gather material—videos, recordings, and written work— that are representative of my entire career. I frequently encounter musicians, amateurs, professionals, and students, who ask me how they might get access to these materials. Now we will have a home for them. The Benjamin Zander Center will be the repository for the work I have done as conductor, educator, and speaker. And since I am currently as active as I ever have been, “visitors” to the Center will gain front row seats to my ongoing work.
