Biographical Note

The Charles Ives Centennial Festival was held in Miami in 1974-1975 to honor the centenary of Ives, a noteworthy American modernist Composer who lived from 1874-1954.

The festival was sponsored by the University of Miami. F. Warren O'Reilly served as the administrator, David Ewen was the Artistic Coordinator, and John Kirkpatrick and Nicolas Slonimsky were Artistic Consultants.
