Coming to the Small Screen: Ormandy & Television
Eugene Ormandy Gallery, Van Pelt-Dietrich Library

Eugene Ormandy

Drawing by Alfred Bendiner, ca. 1952
Eugene Ormandy dedicated his life to music, from the age of three, when he first picked up a violin, to shortly after his 84th birthday, when he conducted his last concert with the Philadelphia Orchestra. It is with this orchestra that Ormandy's name will forever be associated, by virtue of his serving as its Music Director for 42 years.
