From the Maslanka Archive – No. 14, Letter for Kevin Krumenauer

From the Maslanka Archive features media and stories of David’s life and work. Did you work with David? Please consider contributing material.

It’s time for another edition of From the Maslanka Archive. We are actively building the Archive, but it won’t be ready for public viewing for a while. In the meantime, we wanted to show off some great items we’ve already collected.

We also wanted to inspire YOU to help grow the collection. We would love to feature you in an upcoming edition! Simply provide us with photos, video, audio, or stories of your time together and you may find them on the front page. 

This week, we are excited to feature a letter of recommendation written by David for composer Kevin Krumenauer in 2007. Written in his own hand, this letter is a fantastic example of David’s humanity.

As a composer, Kevin Krumenauer has composed actively for wind band, orchestral, and chamber music. He has had works performed by chamber groups from numerous symphonies including the Charlotte and West Virginia Symphonies and has had wind band music commissioned by the wind ensembles and orchestras of Illinois State University, The University of Alabama at Huntsville, Kent State University, and Case Western Reserve University, as well as high schools in Illinois and Wisconsin. His works have been performed both regionally, nationally, and internationally. Mr. Krumenauer is recorded on Albany Records and his music is available at

A very special thanks to Kevin Krumenauer for sharing this letter with the world.

Would you like to be featured in an upcoming edition of From the Maslanka Archive? It’s easy! Please send us anything you have (picture, audio, video, concert poster, concert program, correspondence with David, etc.) and we will feature you!
