On Nov. 15, Casey Butler lost consciousness during her weekly bassoon lesson on the campus of the Peabody Conservatory. The first-year undergrad never recovered.
She died that day at the age of 18. (No word yet on the cause of death.)
The promising student, who was born in Delaware and grew up in Maryland, will be commemorated in a concert Tuesday by the Peabody Wind Ensemble, a concert she would have played.
Her chair will be left empty.
Harlan D. Parker will conduct the program, which will include works by Gustav Holst, James Barnes and Eugene Bozza. An arrangement of "Amazing Grace" will also be performed.
