Seymour Lipkin, our beloved Artistic Director for 28 years, passed away on November 16th, 2015. He was a superlative musician, extraordinary pianist and teacher. At Kneisel Hall, he created a haven for young artists and faculty that nurtured what is most precious in the art of making music- uncompromising seeking of depth, honesty, discovery and mastery in music; of what the composers gave us, and in ourselves. His legacy at Kneisel Hall will be honored, and continued to be lived, by the vast numbers of musicians he influenced. 
Our hearts are broken with our loss.
The 2016 season will be dedicated to his memory - a celebration of his life and a commitment to uphold his ideals.
