I came to know Evelyn Lear about four years ago as the primary accompanist for her private vocal coachings at the University of Maryland, College Park, where she was an Artist-in-Residence on our faculty. Evelyn had an uncanny ability to discover the tiniest of flaws in each and every singer that, when identified and corrected, would result in extraordinary vocal progress for that student. She was warm, caring, sometimes even funny, and very generous with her time and expertise. I also accompanied her once to James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA for a masterclass where she was a big hit with their students and faculty. Occasionally I would go (and a gifted student might sometimes accompany me) to her lovely home across from the golf course for supper at her favorite area restaurant, "Mama Lucia's," or at the nearby golf club, and I/we would enjoy anecdotes, recordings, and wise advice from her long and very distinguished career. Evelyn was a person I loved and admired very much, and I will truly miss her. I feel almost like I have lost a dear aunt and certainly a very special friend, and am so thankful that our paths crossed. I learned much of value from her, and treasure her memory greatly. May she rest now with her beloved Thomas in the loving Light and Presence of God.

1 Peter 5:6,7 Humble ourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt YOU in due time. 7. While YOU throw YOUR anxiety upn him, because he cares for YOU.

I am sorry for your lost and hope that you will find comfort in praying to God for the strength to endure this trying time in your lives.

My wife, Sandi, and I met Miss Lear in Crested Butte, Co last summer, We felt blessed to have the opportunity to thank her for the many joys of hearing her perform. Our thoughts and prayers to all who cared so much for her.

Many years ago I sat in on a rehearsal of the Chamber Music Festival: Saint-Saens Carnival of the Animals. Christopher O'Riley on piano accompanied Evelyn Lear's recitation of the text by Ogden Nash. Ms. Lear's magnificant articulation, as well as her warm and intelligent wit made for a musical hour or so that I will never forget.
