Blanche Moyse (1909-2011)

Blanche Moyse, one of the founders of the Marlboro Music School and Festival in Vermont, has died at the age of 101. Daughter-in-law of the great French flutist Marcel Moyse, she was a violinist-turned-conductor, celebrated in later life for her performances of Bach's choral works.
