Joseph Docksey, Director of the Lamont School of Music from 1988 to 2011, passed away on December 9. Joe was one of the most significant directors in Lamont’s 99-year history. His unfailing commitment, from decades of service to the design of and transition to the Newman Center, left an indelible mark.
