Rowland Gibson Hazard Sturges1,2

M, b. 22 September 1916, d. 5 August 2007
Rowland Sturges (provided by Lulabell at Findagrave.com)
     Rowland Gibson Hazard Sturges was born on 22 September 1916 at Rhode Island.1,3 He was the son of Rush Sturges and Elizabeth Hazard.1 He married Hedvig Mary Von Mayrhauser in July 1943 at Kansas City, Jackson County, Missouri.4 He died on 5 August 2007 at Concord, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, at age 90.3

Rowland G.H. Sturges
September 22, 1916 - August 05, 2007

Rowland Gibson Hazard Sturges died at age 90 on Sunday, August fifth, twenty-three days after the death of his beloved wife, Hedvig von Mayrhauser Sturges, and two days after what would have been their sixty-fourth wedding anniversary. Rowland resided in Concord since 2003, during which time he suffered from Alzheimer's disease. Prior to Concord, Rowland lived in Cambridge for more than sixty years.

A musical prodigy at a young age, Rowland studied piano with Nadia Boulanger in Paris from 1932-35 and in 1938. Rowland graduated from Milton Academy in 1936. In 1940 Rowland received his B.A. from Harvard University, where he was a member of the Signet Club. While at Harvard, Rowland studied with Walter Piston, and also with David Barnett, Bruce Simons, Lily Dumont and Gregory Tucker. Rowland served in the Army during World War II and was posted at a base in Kansas City, MO when he met his future wife Hedvig.

Rowland Sturges was an active concert soloist throughout his life. His debut recital was at Boston's Jordan Hall in 1952, and he gave another recital there in 1954. Rowland was also a featured soloist with the Boston Civic Symphony, and he gave many concerts at Isabella Stuart Gardiner Museum, the Longy School and other museum and university venues. A member of Boston's Trio de Camera, Rowland played chamber music at Harvard University and throughout New England. Many of these performances were broadcast on radio and television. In his later years Rowland gave several concerts at the Harvard Institute for Learning in Retirement (HILR) and at Boston's Hale House. Rowland also faithfully attended HILR for many years, concentrating his studies in philosophy and history.

Teaching music was a major facet of Rowland's career--he had many private students, but he also was a long-time faculty member of the Longy School. In 1988, Longy presented Rowland with a distinguished service award. Due to his flair for lecturing on music, Rowland served as Musician in Residence at the Breadloaf Writers' Conference at Middlebury College from 1952-1955. Rowland also served as Choral Director at the Buckingham School from 1950 to 1968, and at Concord Academy from 1960 to 1968. A lifelong member of the Harvard Musical Association, Rowland also worked tirelessly over decades for the Community Music Center of Boston.

Mr. Sturges leaves his loving children, Alice Sturges Steinman, and her husband, Ira, of Mill Valley, California, Howard Sturges, and his wife, Priscilla, of Concord, Massachusetts and Jeffrey Sturges of Santa Monica, California. He leaves grandchildren Timnah Steinman, of Oakland, California, Joshua Steinman, and his wife, Paige, of San Francisco, and Polly and Phoebe Sturges, of Concord.

A Memorial Concert will be performed in Rowland's honor at the Longy School of Music, 1 Follen Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts at 7 p.m on November 30, 2007.

Burial services at Mt. Auburn Cemetery will be private.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Rowland's memory may be made to the Community Music Center of Boston, 34 Warren Avenue, Boston 02116.
