The A. I. Lack Master Series at the University of Houston’s Moores School of Music annually presents distinguished classical performers and recognized pedagogues in a series of free master classes and recitals, which provide a wider educational experience for its students as well as the Houston community at large. The endowment that supports the series was established in memory of Abram I. Lack in 1989. Lack’s daughter, legendary violinist and teacher, Fredell Lack Eichhorn, held the C. W. Moores Professor of Violin at the University of Houston where she served for 50 years, until her retirement in 2009.
Previous Lack Series guests have included violinists Pinchas Zukerman, Yung Uck Kim, Ruggiero Ricci andMidori; vocalists Diana Soviero, Marilyn Horne, Frederica von Stade, and Samuel Ramey; pianists Christoph Eschenbach and Jeffrey Siegel; flutists Julius Baker and Paula Robison; and composers Philip Glass and Richard Rodney Bennett, among others.
