It is with sadness that we remember John B. Lawson, who passed away peacefully on October 12th, 2021. John was a loyal friend, an avid concert goer, and a supporter of many organizations, not least of which was Toronto Summer Music. He was a founding member of TSM and served on the Board of Directors from 2004 – 2015. He loved to engage with the Academy Fellows as a billet host, and hosted many parties and receptions at his home. His love for and dedication to the arts was second to none. We thank John for all his years of support and friendship. He will be missed.
We dedicate the following performance to John.
Beethoven – Sonatina for Violin and Piano in C minor, WoO 43a
Jonathan Crow, violin
Philip Chiu, piano
