The news of David Craighead’s passing struck the Pittsburgh AGO particularly roughly due to the fact that so many of the guild’s members have spent time with him throughout the years. Current and recently graduated students of Duquesne’s Sacred Music Department know him most recently and have been recounting their experiences with him. We are lucky to have known him and been a part of his legacy.
The funeral arrangements are as follows:
The Funeral will be this Saturday, March 31, 2012 At 10:00 am at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Rochester, NY-the church that he served for organist for nearly 50 years. Prelude will be begin at 9:30 am and a reception to follow in the Asbury First United Methodist Church just up the street where Marian Craighead served as organist for around 40 years.
