Irving Fine

Irving Fine died at the age of 47, just two weeks after conducting the world premiere of his Symphony with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood.

In his short life, Fine created a small but significant body of music and influenced many lives as a skillful and beloved professor at Brandeis University.

The American Music Project will mark this centennial year of Irving Fine (1914-1962) with the Chicago Q Ensemble performing his Fantasia for string trio October 5 at Ganz Hall in Chicago.
