The late Buffalo music legend, drummer Ted D. Reinhardt, and his brother, Tom, a bass guitarist, were among a class of eight who were inducted recently into the Kenmore East High School Performing Arts Hall of Fame.
Ted Reinhardt died at the age of 62, in a single-engine plane crash in Norfolk, Va., on March 4, 2015, which killed him, the pilot and another man. The Reinhardt brothers were inducted along with another musician, pianist Eric Alsford, whose career included a role as a conductor and music director.
Also inducted were three members of the broadcast media who graduated from Kenmore East: Emmy award-winning television writer and producer Jeanine Hunter, radio personality Jim McGee and award-winning television editor Deborah Moran.
On the theatrical side, the Hall of Fame inducted producer and director Carin Zakes and poet Molly Peacock, the star of a one-woman show.
Over the past six years, 30 local and national stars from the fields of music, theater and film have been chosen. More information on the Hall of Fame and its members is available on the Kenmore East Alumni website.
