Former Westminster Choir College Board of Trustees Chairman William H. Scheide died on Nov. 14, 2014. Dr. Scheide served on the Westminster Board for 27 years, nine of them as chairman.
A frequent lecturer and engaging leader, he reinforced his belief in the mission of the choir college with his generous support. The Westminster Symphonic Choir joined the Vienna Chamber Orchestra in January 2014 to perform a concert celebrating Dr. Scheide’s 100th birthday. A PBS broadcast and recording of that concert should be released later this year.
