JAMES PIERCE (1954-2014)

It is with profound sadness that we report the passing on December 5 of Trustee James R. Pierce. For a tribute to Jim, click here. A Cello Chair has been endowed by his family in his memory. See Our Musicians for other endowed positions.



He was known for his dedication to and generous funding of "Peter and the Wolf" as a tool for teaching the love of classical music. To ensure continuation of these performances, Mr. Jamison has established a fund at the Williamsburg Community Foundation. To donate in his memory, call either the WCF or the Symphonia. Thank you, John, for being such an inspiration.
