FYI, > I don’t know if folks have heard, but Russell Peck, wonderful composer of works such as “The Thrill of the Orchestra” and “The Glory and the Grandeur” > > and friend/colleague for so many of us, has been missing from his home since this past Sunday. He seems to have gone for a walk near a city park in his hometown of Greensboro, NC, on Sunday afternoon. A strong winter storm passed through there on Sunday night, so there is grave concern. > > > > I’ve attached a news report link below. > > > > Please keep Russell, his wife Cameron, and their family in your thoughts and prayers. > > > > website > > > > Peace, > Robert Moody > > Music Director, The Portland Symphony Orchestra > > Music Director, The Winston-Salem Symphony > > Artistic Director, Arizona Musicfest

I received a very nice email from Russell on Friday, Feb. 27. Please keep us informed of developments. His work, [U]The Upward Stream[U] was brought to my attention last month, and he responded very pleasantly to my inquiries. Pat Mann email

Tragically, Russell Peck has been found dead today. I received this news from Jim Houlik who had told me of the situation earlier this week, so I believe it to be accurate. My prayers go out to his family and those who loved him as well as his music. Cliff Leaman
