Great news about a place where I was fortunate to spend 30 years, the last 18 as curator, and great news about a person I’ve been happy to know since 2006. Gary Galván will be a wonderful curator of the Fleisher Collection, the world’s largest lending library of orchestral performance material. As Gary’s picture testifies, it’s at the Free Library of Philadelphia.
From the news release:
The Fleisher Collection of Orchestral Music is pleased to announce the appointment of its new and seventh curator, Dr. Gary Galván. A graduate of the University of Florida musicology program, he came to Fleisher as a researcher and has worked with the collection as a musicologist and the digital projects coordinator since 2006. He has written and lectured extensively on the Fleisher Collection and the Symphony Club and is currently writing a biography on our founding philanthropist, “From Cradle to Grave: Edwin A. Fleisher and the Pan American Symphonic Coming of Age.”
Congratulations and welcome, Dr. Galván!
