UW's Erös leads final concert on June 4

"Friday, Peter Erös — the University of Washington School of Music's Morrison Endowed Professor of Conducting — will lead his final concert with the University Symphony. Erös, who came to the UW in 1989, is retiring from both his teaching and conducting posts. He was born in Budapest in 1932, migrated to the Netherlands in 1956 in the wake of the Hungarian Revolution and first came to the U.S. in 1965 when George Szell invited him to be a Kulas Foundation Fellow with the Cleveland Orchestra."
