Lauren had a lifelong passion for music. She had very eclectic tastes - her CD collection included everything from rock, jazz, and folk to classical, punk, and klezmer - from country, bluegrass, and traditional blues to tango, samba, and reggae. Lauren was an adventurous listener - in college, she would comb the shelves of the UT music library searching for interesting looking CD's. She would then spend hours with this experimental listening - it was here that she discovered some of her favorites - Erik Satie, Maurice Ravel, and Charles Ives among others. I remember being surprised that as the son of a conductor and after years of study in various music schools, I was often outdone by Lauren's self-acquired knowledge.
