I am honored to be serving the Haydn Society of North America as the new editor for the online Newsletter. Peter Alexander served as the newsletter's first editor, and I know that many of you share in my gratitude for his leadership, service, and conscientious work in this forum. The RIT Press supports this platform for member news, announcements of publications, grants, conferences, and concerts and this allows us to communicate information in a more timely manner than that offered by an equivalent print publication.
I cultivate various Haydn-related information as I am able, but would ask the membership to help me by sending me relevant news items of both personal accomplishments and academic events that would be of interest to Society members. In addition, I maintain a Haydn Concert Calendar to highlight performances of Haydn's music that are taking place in North America.
You may send all news items to me at HSNA.Newsletter@rit.edu.
I look forward to seeing the Newsletter flourish with Haydn-related news from all over North America!
