American conductor THOMAS DUNN has died of heart failure at the age of 82.
Dunn passed away on 26 October (08) in his home of Bloomington, Indiana.
He also suffered from Parkinson's disease for several years.
A specialist in Baroque music, Dunn appeared at Carnegie Hall, Town Hall, Avery Fisher Hall and other major auditoriums in New York as a choral and orchestral conductor.
He was also a past music director of the Cantata Singers, a highly regarded amateur group in the city.
But Dunn was perhaps best known as the founder and conductor of the Festival Orchestra of New York - an ensemble that was critically acclaimed throughout its existence from 1959 to 1969.
He later served as the music director of Boston's Handel and Haydn Society from 1967 to 1986 - among the oldest operating performing-arts organisations in the U.S.
He is survived by his partner, David Manuel Villanueva.
