Remembering Deborah Sobol - Anthony Devroye
...
"It is hard to believe that a year has passed since the sudden and unexpected death of Deborah Sobol- concert pianist, visionary impressaria and founder of Rush Hour Concerts. Debbie's career started on stage when she was a young girl, blossomed in her adopted hometown of Chicago, and led to organization-building work that had her crossing paths with a whole generation of Chicago's emerging chamber musicians and ensembles.
The role of mentor came naturally to Debbie, and she gave freely of her boundless energy in teaching young artists how institutional strength can undergird the preservation and invigoration of the art form to which she devoted her life. One year on, the organization she founded to expand the reach of live music remains strong, and the young artists and music-lovers she mentored carry her lessons with them in diverse pursuits that contribute to the vitality of the cultural scene in Chicago and beyond.
Below you will find some reflections from a cross-section of the artists and professionals whose lives she touched."

Celebrating 15th Anniversary and Honoring Memory of Founder Deborah Sobol
...
CHICAGO (March 26, 2014) - This summer, Rush Hour Concerts (RHC) celebrates its 15th anniversary season and honors the memory of its founder, Deborah Sobol, who passed away unexpectedly January 25, 2014 at the age of 63. Sobol launched RHC in 2000 to create free public access to high-quality music and, since then, the summer concert series has become a beloved annual event offering live classical music every Tuesday evening after work in River North's serene and historic St. James Cathedral, 65 E. Huron Street.
...
To honor Debbie Sobol's vision to provide a listening moment each month of 2014, Rush Hour Concerts' 15th anniversary year, we are pleased to share edited excerpts from her previous writings found in the RHC archives, that seem particularly appropriate for our current weather.
