Dino “Maestro” Anagnost ☆

Dear Arts & Humanities community,

We would like to share the sad news that our distinguished alumnus, cherished friend, and long time faculty member Dino Anagnost passed away suddenly, early on the morning of March 31, 2011.

Maestro Anagnost is survived by his business partner of 45 years, John Kordel Juliano of New York City and Livingston, NY, a brother Dick Anagnost, a sister Debra Anagnost, a sister-in-law Demetria and three nephews Alexander, Stavros and Dimitri, all of Bedford, NH.

Dr. Anagnost was Music Director and Conductor of The Little Orchestra Society of New York for 32 years. During that time he touched the lives of thousands of children with his uniquely designed concerts. He also created innovative concerts for adults, including the well-known Vivaldi’s Venice series.

Friends may call Sunday, April 3, 4-8pm at Frank E. Campbell, 1076 Madison Avenue at 81st Street. Services will be held on Monday, April 4, 10am at The Greek Orthodox Archdiocesan Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, 319 East 74th Street, NYC.

In lieu of flowers, friends and supporters are encouraged to make contributions to The Little Orchestra Society as a tribute to Maestro Anagnost.
