“She invites us from beginning to end to appreciate the world ‘through the Nabokovian lens.’ It is in sum a method she proposes, implying that happiness is within our reach, that in order to access it we need to become ourselves, by impregnation and mimetic design, characters of his œuvre.”

-Eric Chevillard, Le Monde

October 15, 2024, 7 pm | Dinner with William S Hearst | National Arts Club, 15 Gramercy Park South (East 20th St) New York, NY 10003

William S. Hearst was Senior Vice President of Associate Labor Relations and Human Resources for Bloomingdale’s Stores: the 59th Street Flagship, 32 Department Stores, and 13 Outlets nationwide.

A 1974 graduate of Cornell University, Bill holds an A.B. degree in Music and American History with substantial coursework in Industrial and Labor Relations. Upon graduation, Bill embarked on a dual career at Bloomingdale’s, as well as a professional organist and choirmaster. At Bloomingdale’s, Bill progressed through 19 different positions that spanned Operations, Fashion Buying, Store Management, and most recently Corporate Human Resources. Simultaneously, Bill cultivated a full Episcopal liturgical music career in organ performance, choir building, and conducting. After 29 years, Bill retired from his church music career in 2004, focusing exclusively on Bloomingdale’s. A passion for music performance, however, continues unabated. Bill and his wife Joan are native New Yorkers who raised their three children, Billy, Mary, and Andrew.

Bill Hearst was Chairman of the Board of the Stecher and Horowitz Foundation, a relationship that began in 1964 when he was a student at the original Stecher and Horowitz School of Music. An avid opera enthusiast, Bill spends a portion of each day maintaining piano repertoire and performing in small ensembles with friends.
