What is your primary interest in the art song and this organization?

I love the art song genre, have performed recitals for many years, taught many students the art songs of Niles, Copland, Ives, Bernstein, Rorem, Still, Bonds, King, Moore, Price, Beach, Jankowski, Boulanger, Malibran, Viardot, Hensel, Clara Schumann, Alma Mahler, Schubert. Schumann, Strauss and many more of the favorites and most recently, Max Kowalski,[masked] (Holocaust composer) who I have researched and championed over the last 20 years.

What are your 3 favorite art songs or art song composers?

Cannot narrow down to only 3 but maybe Strauss, Schumann, Mahler and Schubert of the known German. Ives, Niles and Bernstein of the American men. WGStill (his daughter is a close friend and I loved performing his music for her programs) Bonds and Price are some of my favorite African American composers. Hensel, Mahler, Schumann are three of my very favorite women composers. Die Sonne Sinkt is a three song cycle of Kowalski which I adore, on the poetry of Nietzsche. How can one even begin to narrow down a field of music that is so varied and wealthy?

Would you be interested in volunteering your time or contributing your talents or expertise to the Art Song Preservation Society of NY?

If time permits. My health is not good. Would like to come to presentations.

How did you first hear about our organization?

My friend and accompanist, Angela Manso.


I am a recitalist and voice teacher-Newark School of the Arts (over 27 yrs) Sang for many yrs, operatic, oratorio & classical works on recitals & orchestral programs. Lectured on Still's music & Kowalski's exhibiting manuscripts & memorabilia.
