The Return of the Richard P. Garmany Chamber Music Series
Under the leadership of founding curator Steve Metcalf, the Garmany Chamber Music Series quickly established a tradition of presenting world-class artists performing meaningful and enriching programs. Whenever possible, the series seeks to bring new music, cutting edge ensembles, and innovative approaches to the performance of chamber music. At the same time, it is imperative that the needs of the students are met, involving as many different areas of the school as possible in masterclasses, coachings, and lectures.
The University of Hartford's Hartt School gratefully acknowledges that this concert series is made possible by the Richard P. Garmany Fund at the Hartford Foundation of Public Giving.
Resilient. Determined. Unconstrained.

As one of the few remaining African-American Atomic Veterans, Hank’s story shows that music knows no bounds, and that it is never too late to pursue your passion. View his full interview below.
