EXCERPT: "...Mr. Brown created the [Irving Fine] society while an undergraduate at Brandeis, Fine’s longtime professional home, where he developed the music department after leaving Harvard. “We’re trying to commemorate the three major factors of his professional life: the music, the education and also the work he did as an administrator,” Mr. Brown said recently. “His music is standard repertoire for that genre of the American Neo-Classical school, and there aren’t many places addressing that type of repertoire unfortunately.”
