The Gunther Schuller Society sends our deepest condolences to the family of John Heiss and to all former students and colleagues at the New England Conservatory who were touched and inspired by one of the great musicians and educators of our time.


“And it is this sense that some of us have to contribute to the culture, to the society in ways that may hurt financially, so what? We do it because we are born to do it, we feel we have no other choice and so be it.”

~ Gunther Schuller
