Classical | "The Resurrection" in Memory of ESM Dean Douglas Lowry 

On October 2, Douglas Lowry, Dean Emeritus of the Eastman School of Music, passed away. He had only recently stepped down as Dean, a position he assumed in 2007. Lowry, also a composer and conductor, was only 62. Jamal Rossi succeeds Lowry as Dean.

In memory of Lowry, a concert is being dedicated on Friday, October 18 at the Eastman Theater, presented by the Eastman Philharmonia and the Eastman Rochester Chorus, under conductor Neil Varon. Almost 300 instrumentalists and choral members will perform Mahler's "The Resurrection." Its first movement, "Todtenfeier" ("Funeral Rites") is a symphonic poem, and, according to Mahler's personal notes, the complete symphony poses a series of questions on the meaning of life and death, which he sought to answer.

Eastman Philharmonia with the Eastman Rochester Chorus performs Friday, October 18, 8 p.m., Kodak Hall at the Eastman Theater, 60 Gibbs St., free, esm.rochester.edu, 274-1100.
