Duckworth Memorial Service

A memorial service for Bill Duckworth will be held this Friday, September 28, from 5 to 8 PM in the penthouse of Westbeth Artist Housing, 55 Bethune Street in New York City. There had been a memorial for John Cage there, and Bill wanted his memorial there as well for that reason. A tribute concert is being planned for Oct. 2; more on that later.

    Received news of Bill only yesterday, found the obit. and then your tribute, Kyle. Strange times indeed. I am cast back to an earlier period when times were at once strange and wonderful….Glad you lived it with us and could offer a eulogy for this nuanced composer and man. Knew something of Bernard’s musical ability, not that he had studied with Bill. (Perhaps some passing influence from the poetry readings he slept through in Smith Library as well?) Mindy

    KG replies: Lovely to hear from you, Mindy. If I could remember any old memories, it would bring them back. The memorial service tonight was some consolation.
