That should be a fabulous presentation.  Will it be preserved in any way for those of us who can't get to N.Y.?

>The scion of a distinguished British musical family of Belgian origin,
>Goossens counted among his siblings Leon, often called the world’s greatest
>oboist, and a sister, Sidonie, a celebrated harpist. In 1921, with the
>composer present, he conducted in Queen’s Hall the first concert
>performance in Britain of Stravinsky’s *Le Sacre du printemps*. He began to
>make recordings the following year and continued to do so for the next four
>decades. He was conductor of two American orchestras, Rochester (1923-31)
>and Cincinnati (1933-46). With the latter, he made a memorable series of
>RCA Victor recordings beginning in 1941. From Cincinnati he went to Sydney,
>Australia, as conductor of the Sydney Symphony. He was credited with
>revitalizing that nation’s musical life, but in 1956, a sex scandal drove
>him from Australia in disgrace. Back in England, his final six years of
>life were difficult, although he enlarged his discography considerably by
>recording for the newly established Everest label. Aside from that
>discography, his most enduring legacy is the Sydney Opera
>House<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sydney_Opera_House>,
>although it would not be dedicated until a decade after his death.
>
>During his lifetime, Goossens was regarded among the leading younger
>British conductors, with wide interpretative sympathies, reflected in
>recordings from acoustic to 35mm mag film. Composers as diverse as
>Sibelius, Rachmaninoff, Bax, Stravinsky, Respighi, Tchaikovsky and Bizet
>will be included in this presentation, which will also include some of the
>eighteen fanfares Goossens commissioned in 1942 from several composers, the
>most famous of which is Copland’s *Fanfare for the Common Man*.

>Dennis D. Rooney joined ARSC in 1996 and currently serves on its Technical
>Committee and Book Awards Panel. His reviews of books and recordings
>regularly appear in the ARSC JOURNAL and he has been a regular presenter at
>ARSC national conferences.  A professional career embracing journalism,
>classical  record production, broadcasting and narration has been
>accompanied by nearly six decades as a record collector.  Discs from his
>collection  are frequently used in CD historical reissues.

>A producer and Archival and Catalogue Exploitation Consultant to the
>classical recording  industry, he developed and contributed to important

>issued in 2003 by the Minnesota Orchestra to celebrate its centennial.
