The life of a Norfolk-based music expert will be celebrated at a concert at Norwich Cathedral this month.
Prof David Chadd, who steered UEA's school of music through four successful decades, died in November after a short illness.
The memorial concert, which is free, will be held on February 16 at 7.30pm. The programme will feature some of Prof Chadd's favourite compositions, including works by Bach, Haydn, Josquin and choral arrangements of Carl Nielsen songs.
David Chadd studied English and Music at Keble College, Oxford in the early 1960s. His tutors included JRR Tolkien, Egon Wellesz and Frank Harrison.
After a brief period at Durham University he was appointed to a lectureship in music at UEA in 1967, shortly after the school of music was established. From 1998 to 2005 he was the department's head.

Dr Jonathan Impett, current head of the school of music, said: “The school indelibly and gratefully bears his stamp. The deep intelligence which he carried with such charm, his warmth, wisdom and civility graced all those with whom he came into contact. He will be sorely missed by his friends, colleagues and students.”
