We are saddened to report that Joan Faber, a great friend of GEMS and supporter of the larger early music community, died last week. Joan was a familiar presence at many early music concerts in the area, and with her husband Peter were major financial supporters of several organizations, including GEMS, Music Before 1800, and the Boston Early Music Festival. Her quick mind, amiability, valuable business experience, and warm personality will be sorely missed by all of us.
