Herb Pomeroy Scholarship Concert April 1

In memory of Herb Pomeroy, Berklee will present a concert on April 1, 2008, at 8:15 P.M. at the Berklee Performance Center. Under the direction of Greg Hopkins, the Berklee Concert Jazz Orchestra will perform pieces by some of Pomeroy's most notable students and colleagues, including Toshiko Akiyoshi, Alan Broadbent, Michael Gibbs, Rob Mounsey, Hal Crook, and Greg Hopkins. The program's centerpiece is a composition written and conducted by Jaxon Stock '71 that was composed as a feature for Pomeroy but because of his illness was never performed.

Those who had the privilege of studying and working with Pomeroy will always remember his inspirational teaching, the beauty of his playing, his sense of humor, and the warmth of his friendship. By performing music written by those directly inspired by Pomeroy, we will celebrate his artistic legacy.

Proceeds from the concert will go to the Herb Pomeroy Scholarship Fund. Alumni and friends who are unable to attend but wish to make a contribution can send checks payable to Berklee College of Music, Herb Pomeroy Scholarship Fund, Attention: David McKay, 1140 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02215.
