The staff of Penn Press was saddened by news of the passing of Bruce Montgomery, composer, educator, director, and author of Brothers, Sing On!: My Half-Century Around the World with the Penn Glee Club. Montgomery died on June 21 in his home in Maine shortly after his 81st birthday. As director of Penn’s Glee Club and founder of the Penn Singers, Monty cut a memorable figure on campus for generations of students. Montgomery will also be remembered as the lyricist and composer of the off Broadway hit, "The Amorous Flea". He was recently honored at an Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts gala where a studio theater was renamed the "Bruce Montgomery Theatre."
More information on Montgomery’s work and legacy is available at The Philadelphia Inquirer online.
