Musician, composer, and emeritus professor R. Gary Deavel retired from Manchester University in North Manchester, Indiana, where he taught piano, organ, music theory, and humanities. He lives in Traverse City, Michigan. Having recently turned 89, it seems to us that Gary will be our reigning elder for the foreseeable future. Hurrah!
We are delighted to include his “Variation on ‘What the Moon Knows'” as part of the “Vicinity | Memoryall” audio download and are thankful for Evola Music in Traverse City for their recording of his piano piece.
