I haven't contributed in quite a while due to other commitments but I want to share the obituary of one of Albany's most beloved musical beings: David Griggs-Janower. Professor of Music at UAlbany and the founder of the great Albany Pro Musica choral group, Maestro Griggs-Janower was a great musician and a great heart. His great heart was evident in the way he conducted his choral group and also in the many letters-to-the editor to the Albany Times Union on many subjects that had nothing to do with music. We will miss you, David. Our hearts are broken here in the Capital District with your passing.
