Marcel Proust admired his contemporary Claude Debussy so much that he once threw him a party. Debussy refused to attend. “I know I am a bear … don’t hold it against me,” Debussy responded. “I was born that way.” Hmm, where have we heard that before? No matter. France’s greatest composer will have little say over the party the Blair School of Music will hold in his honor next week. The event will feature students from both the collegiate and pre-college divisions performing piano solos along with duos for piano, flute, clarinet and voice. Blair musicologist Joy Calico will speak at 6:45 p.m., and the free concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at Ingram Hall. Cake will be served afterward. The concert is a benefit for the homeless advocacy group Room in the Inn, and the artwork of the group’s residents will be on display in the lobby. Donations will be accepted but are not required.
