The Founders

The Ferris Burtis Foundation was founded by the late John Ferris, for thirty-two years the University Organist and Choirmaster at Harvard, and by Herbert Burtis, internationally known pianist, organist, harpsichordist, and teacher of voice. He has taught at Harvard University and Smith College.

The Foundation assists young classical musicians in their education and careers.
