In Memoriam Jack Barbash, Board Vice President

Jack promoted conservation through music in Tompotika

We at AlTo are very sad to announce that our Board Vice-President, Jack Barbash, died September 7, 2015. Jack cared deeply about music and nature conservation and devoted a great deal of his time and attention to AlTo’s work. We plan to establish, in Jack’s name, a legacy fund for music that supports conservation in Tompotika, Indonesia, where Jack made great contributions.

AlTo has recently established a recurring festival in which conservation information and values are promoted and celebrated through the arts. We aim to establish a fund that will motivate local Tompotikans to compose and perform Music for Conservation as part of the festival. All who wish to honor Jack and his legacy are invited to contribute to this effort. More about Jack and the legacy fund
