Dr. John Dovaras was the conductor of the predecessor choir, the Oakland University Community Chorus. He is fondly remembered by several of the current, active members of the Oakland Choral Society. He will be missed by many and remembered in our concert performances.

Thanks to Anita for the note and the reference to the Obituary. Dr. John Nicholas Dovaras, November 22, 1933 - April 24, 2018, Born in Brockton, MA, Resided in Michigan.

Interesting story concerning Morten Lauridsen and the composition and production of the Lux Aeterna. The power of music is amazing.

Moten tells about the time he visited Paul Salmunovich.
