In memory; Holy Cross concert.

Byline: Richard Duckett


Sunday's Holy Cross Chapel Artists Series concert at 3 p.m. in St. Joseph Memorial Chapel of the College of the Holy Cross will be dedicated to late college president the Rev. John E. Brooks, S.J.

Rev. Brooks, who died July 2, was president of Holy Cross from 1970 to 1994, making him the longest serving president in the college's history. The program for Sunday's concert, which is free and open to the public, will include 19th- and 20th-century French music for harp, violin, tenor and organ. The musicians will be Ann Hobson Pilot (harp), Carol Lieberman (violin), Michael Calmes (tenor), and James David Christie (organ).

Rev. Brooks commissioned the college's award-winning Taylor and Boody Organ, designed in the tradition of 16th- and 17th-century Dutch and north German organs, which was completed and dedicated in St. Joseph's Memorial Chapel in 1985. Christie, distinguished artist in residence at Holy Cross and college organist, said "The arts always flourished at Holy Cross under his presidency."
