“I’m wishing he could see that music lives. Forever. That it’s stronger than death. Stronger than time. And that its strength holds you together when nothing else can.” Jennifer Donnelly, Revolution

The poignant news of the passing of our Founder, Dr. Glenn Alan Mallory, is only relieved by the awe in which we will continue to hold him. A life of passion, inspiration, insight, and love all shared freely and immutably with those of us who were honoured to know him and the many who found joy in witnessing his gift. Glenn’s steadfast dedication to the development of generations of young people through music leaves a now global community of musicians, families, colleagues, and friends struggling to find a high note in our saddened hearts; truly a testament to a life of purpose so well lived and a legacy that will not and cannot be forgotten. Thank you, Glenn. Thank you.

On behalf of the HPYO Board of Directors and Staff, we offer our deepest condolences to his family, close friends and colleagues, and the entire family of HPYO musicians, past and present.
