just found the below article in BILLBOARD - perhaps the connection is to Haydn Society rather
than Concert Hall?
Anyone know anything further about BEECHURST PRESS ??
Best wishes, Thomas.

Beechurst Buys Haydn Disks
NEW YORK - Sale of the Haydn Society to the Beechurst Press,
which owns a 50 per cent interest in Heritage Records, has
been confirmed. The Purchase follows, by a month, a deal
for the label by the Record Hunter, which was terminated
by the death of George Seaman, former president for the retail disk chain.
Reported sale price is $63,000, which includes acquisition
by the new owners of well over 50,000 Haydn Society disks, Heritage and
Haydn will be operated as two separate labels under the same
Beechurst management. Thomas Yosseloff is president of
the later firm. Over all sales activity will be handled by
James Richman, current Heritage sales chief.
No New releases will be made on the Haydn label until a
substantial share of the current inventory is marketed.

I can't stop to double check right now, but Heritage was a sub-label of
Concert Hall, if memory serves.
