[UPDATE] Bedford, Music Communities Rally Around Lou Kitchner

“06880” reader Will Vail writes:

Lou Kitchner is the 6th and 7th grade band director at Bedford Middle School. He is also head of the Bedford wind ensemble and Westport’s All-City Band, and conducts the Norwalk Youth Symphony.

Two years ago, Lou was a quarterfinalist for the Grammy Music Educator Award.

That is his resume. But to all who know him, “Mr. K” is much more. He is an amazing educator who truly embraces the idea and philosophy of the love of learning music. He lives, breathes and is completely devoted to all his students. He is a much loved and respected teacher, a great person and a pillar of the community.

Lou’s eldest son, Brian Anderson, died this morning in a car accident on I-95. This devastating news shook the Westport music community Lou is so much a part of.

Lou is a single parent, working hard to raise his children in Westport. A Go Fund Me page has been set up to help ease the costs of funeral arrangements, and ensure Brian receives a proper burial (Brian Andersen).
