Memorial dedication set

A tribute to Ernest Bloch

The dedication of a memorial wayside for famous composer Ernest Bloch has been set for July 20 and 21 along Highway 101 in Newport’s Agate Beach. “He was born July 24 and he died on July 15, so that’s why we did it in that time frame as kind of an anniversary,” said Frank Geltner, flame keeper for the Ernest Block Legacy Project. “The monument is going to sit right here (at the wayside) and it’s going to be so that his face is looking toward the ocean.”
