Cecilia Mourns the Death of Donald Teeters

The death of Donald Teeters in early August has left the Cecilia community--singers, instrumentalists, and audiences--with an abiding sense of sadness.

As many of you know, since his retirement from The Boston Cecilia and from
All Saints Parish, Donald had begun a new and satisfying phase of his life. He had been looking forward to continuing his teaching at New England Conservatory, to writing reviews of local classical-music performances, and to his ongoing work with the new group Opera Brittenica, for whom he conducted The Burning Fiery Furnace in early May. He only recently completed a chapter for the forthcoming history of the Handel and Haydn Society, a large collaborative project for the occasion of its bicentennial celebration in 2015. Earlier this month, upon returning from his most recent trip to Prague, he said that it had been a wonderful experience.

A funeral service will be held at All Saints Parish in Brookline, on Wednesday, September 3rd, at 7:30pm. The Boston Cecilia’s first concert of the season, “The Czech­-American Connection,” will be given in memory of our Conductor Emeritus onSunday, October 19th, at 3:00pm, at All Saints Parish.
