CARL LACHMUND: Direct connection with Liszt

The University of Oregon School of Music has a direct link with Liszt through one of his Weimar students: Carl Lachmund. Lachmund was the Dean of the School of Music in Eugene from 1912-1913. To celebrate this exciting connection, the Oregon Chapter organized the 2012 Festival of the American Liszt Society in Eugene, and the Medal of the American Liszt Society was awarded posthumously to Carl Lachmund. Members of his family were in town to receive the medal.
