Frank Heino Damrosch (hī´nō dăm´rŏsh), 1859–1937, German-American conductor and educator, attended the College of the City of New York; son of Leopold Damrosch. In 1885, after a few years in Denver, he became chorus master and assistant conductor of the Metropolitan Opera, New York City, remaining in that position until 1891. He organized the Musical Art Society, an a cappella chorus, in 1893. He supervised (1897–1905) the music of the public schools of New York and conducted (1898–1912) the Oratorio Society and the Symphony Concerts for Young People. His most important work was the founding in 1905, with James Loeb, of the Institute of Musical Art (later a unit of the Juilliard School), which he directed until 1933.
