Michael Hawley has died. I think he was known around here for participation in the 2002 Van Cliburn amateur competition. He may have posted here a few times, but I don't remember for certain.

Here's the obit from MIT - the NYT has one, also.

Some recordings are on his MIT page, at least right now -

I knew him a bit through those Cliburn events, but had no idea he had become ill.
Although he had been ill for some time, it appears his recent decline was Covid related, if perhaps indirectly.

From the obituaries and memoriams, I have learned that his achievements were even wider and larger than I had known.
