Ed Murray conducts Rake's Progress

Here is a link to the Cornell Chronicle article about Ed Murray's operatic work at Cornell in 1997. Murray, who succeeded Karel Husa in 1975 as conductor and director of the Cornell Symphony Orchestra, was musical director for the Ithaca Opera Association's productions of Candide, Cosi Fan Tutte, Marriage of Figaro, Fairy Queen and Gershwin's Of Thee I Sing. Widely known as a performer with the Society of New Music, Murray has performed in concert several times with David Borden, director of Cornell's digital music program, at Barnes Hall in two-piano programs of popular and jazz standards. Murray and Borden have released a CD of popular and jazz standards, "Night and Day," on the Lameduck label. (The performance dates for this production was March 27 and 28, 1997)
