Memorial Event for Seymour Lipkin

July 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm



Dear Kneisel Hall Friends (including all past and present faculty, students, supporters and board members),

On July 23rd, in the Concert Hall at Kneisel Hall, we are having a memorial evening for our beloved Artistic Director of 28 years, the great pianist, Seymour Lipkin, who passed away on November 16th, 2015. We invite all of you to attend. It will be an evening of his music, as well as shared stories and reflections of him, reflecting on the huge personal and musical impact he had on so many of our lives. We will gather together as a large extended Kneisel Hall family; to remember, celebrate, and cherish the years we had with Seymour, and the gifts he left us.

We are collecting written stories and memories, as well as favorite photos, to include in a book to commemorate this event. Please send those you would like to contribute, to Festival@Kneisel.org. Those submissions received before July 13th, will be included in a temporary display at the memorial evening. Those, as well as any received later than that date, will be put into a permanent volume to be assembled in the fall.

We very much look forward to seeing many of you at this special evening on July 23rd. For those of you unable to join us, we still look forward to sharing your written thoughts and personal stories about your experiences with Seymour.


Laurie Smukler

Interim Aritstic Director
