Percy Hall Memorial Fund

An icon in the Ohio music scene for over 65 years, Percy Hall touched thousands of lives during his time as a public school band, orchestra, and choral director in the greater Mansfield area, first in the Madison School System, and then for 35 years at Mansfield Senior High School. He also served for many years as the supervisor of music for the Mansfield City Schools. After his retirement from public school teaching, he taught for 10 years as an adjunct music professor at Ashland University, helping to prepare the next generation of music educators. He was a composer and a prolific arranger of countless pieces for band, orchestra, and ensembles - many which have been published. He was a member of the Mansfield Symphony, a conductor of the Mansfield Youth Strings, assistant conductor of the Mansfield Youth Symphony, and he coordinated and directed many school outreach programs and summer public concert series across North Central Ohio.

In memory of his work as a beloved teacher and mentor to countless students, and to commemorate his lifelong commitment to the Mansfield Symphony and its student organizations, the Percy Hall Memorial Fund seeks to honor Percy's legacy by supporting meaningful music education opportunities for youth in the North Central Ohio area.

      I am pleased to provide donation to this fund, in honor of Percy F. Hall, a person who was much more to so many of us than just a music teacher. He not only provided the requisite music education, but also taught us lessons and gave us opportunities to succeed that provided a base from which to grow in our adult lives. Many of us, myself included, can attribute our personal successes to the teachings and mentoring of this fine man and his family. My most sincere condolences go out to Nancy, my former fellow classmates, David and John, and their siblings, Barry, Cathy, and Susan. And I hope to have the opportunity to meet many, if not all of you, tomorrow at the Memorial. Jeannette Stauffer Mittra

      I can't thank Mr. Hall enough for all that did for me. Not only the opportunities he provided through music performance which allowed me to grow in ways far beyond the music alone, but the character he demonstrated provided examples that I reflect on frequently.

      In memory of Anne Marie Rising. She was a member of the Mansfield Symphony Orchestra for many years. She inspired all of her children with the passion of music and loved the playing in the orchestra.

      My years at MHS from ‘66 to ‘69 were enriched by Percy Hall through Marching Band, Orchestra, Stage Band and various small brass ensembles. His remarkable skill was never more apparent than when he wrote the orchestrations for Varsity Varieties, so that the stage band could accompany the musical acts each year. He was truly a great individual!
