Melvin Strauss had a long association with contemporary music as well as with John Cage. Strauss first attracted the attention of contemporary music circles with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at the Contemporary Music Weeks at Tanglewood, where he was also appointed conductor of the Fromm Players. This led to an appointment at the University of Pennsylvania (1965-67), then as Associate Conductor at the Buffalo Philharmonic (1968-73, where he also taught conducting at SUNY Buffalo and first met Cage), and as the conductor of the orchestra at Wesleyan University (1985-92).
