LEONARD ROSE CENTENNIAL BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
The Meadowmount School of Music is delighted to announce that the Annual Benefit Concert, on July 29, will honor the 100th birthday of legendary cellist Leonard Rose (July 27, 1918 – November 16, 1984).
Mr. Rose was on the Meadowmount faculty from 1952 – 1960 and taught generations of today’s most distinguished cellists including Yo-Yo Ma, Myung-wha Chung, Stephen Kates, Ronald Leonard, Hans Jorgen Jensen and Lynn Harrell who will be our special guest artist for the evening.
It is our hope that the concert will conclude the campaign to establish the Leonard Rose Memorial Fellowship. Contributions to the Fellowship can be made by clicking here
"Leonard Rose played an integral part in the legend of the Meadowmount School. During his time at the school, Mr. Rose participated in training and inspiring the legions of cellists that influenced American musical life, including those who became the backbone of the magnificent cello sections of our great orchestras. A Leonard Rose Scholarship at Meadowmount will help continue that great tradition."
- Yo-Yo Ma
"Mr. Rose was a warm and caring teacher. I learned from him the human warmth and the warmth of the sound he projected through his cello. That remained in me to this day, and formed the core of my own playing and teaching."
- Myung-Wha Chung, Professor Emeritus, Korean National University of Arts, Artistic Director, Great Mountains Music Festival & School/PyeongChang Winter Music Festival
"As a former student of Leonard Rose at Meadowmount and later his successor as a teacher at Meadowmount I have many fond memories of Meadowmount. IT is where I made my greatest strides as a cellist, all due to Mr. Rose, to whom I shall be eternally grateful for his mentorship and love. The world of music owes much to Leonard Rose and a Memorial Fellowship in his honor is long overdue."
- Ron Leonard
"Leonard Rose was perhaps the definitive cellistic influence in my professional development. His model of how the cello should be played has remained with me all these many years. And his presence at Meadowmount during my years there were more valuable and helpful to me than the limited time his concertizing allowed him to spend with his students at the Curtis Institute of Music. So the establishment of a fellowship in his name at Meadowmount is something I would strongly recommend."
