Dr. Richards Celebration of Life Event at UMBC

Tuesday, March 7 at 6pm

We hope you will be able to join us, either in person or online, on Tuesday evening, March 7 at 6pm in the Linehan Concert Hall, as we celebrate Dr. Richards' life. Livestream link: https://vimeo.com/event/3008511 

We feel that a fitting conclusion to our event shall be a reading of Elgar’s Nimrod, from his Enigma Variations. This work was a favorite of Dr. Richards, and one of the last works he conducted as director of the USO. It also is a beautiful message from a friend, with a rich tradition of performances honoring departed musicians. While not a performance, this reading offers us the chance to casually come together as artists and collectively share a musical offering for a friend. All current and former members of the USO, as well as any UMBC faculty or colleagues of Dr. Richards are welcome to participate. The instrumentation is full symphony orchestra with timpani and no other percussion. If you are interested in performing, please go HERE for information and links to the music.
