George Crumb was born in Charleston in 1929. His father played the clarinet and his mother played the cello – both for the Charleston Symphony. Crumb graduated from the Mason School of Music and left West Virginia to pursue his masters. He’s won numerous awards for a distinguished career in composing, recording and teaching, including a 1968 Pulitizer Prize for his piece Echoes of Time and the River.
