Donna K. Anderson, performing arts (music), spoke about American composer Charles T. Griffes in London's Wigmore Hall on June 25. The talk preceded an all-Griffes concert, the first in England that Anderson helped to organize and for which she also provided publicity materials and extensive program notes. Of the latter, critic Peter Grahame Woolf wrote, "A pre-concert talk had been given by Donna Anderson, whose photos and extensive notes made the programme one of the best seen at Wigmore Hall." Anderson just returned from the Czech Republic where, on Oct. 12, she delivered the inaugural address, "A Brief Introduction to the Rise of Choral Music in the American Colonies During the 17th and 18th Centuries," at a three-day choral symposium, "Cantus Choralis 09," held Oct. 12-14 at Jan Evangelista Purkyne University in Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic. The event, held every two years, featured presentations by scholars from the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and the United States, as well as concerts by Czech and Slovak choirs.
