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.

Miss Lear was my role model and vocal hero. The legacy she leaves will live on in all those women who study her work and all the detailed material she so lovingly produced. Thank you just isn't enough.

Both Stephanie and I wish to express our deepest condolences to the family of Evelyn Lear. She has been a light in American music all of our lives and her willingness, with her husband Thomas Stewart, to develop unique American careers, at a time when the arts have struggled, has given both pleasure and hope to every American Artist. They had magnificent operatic careers but I will never forget the duets and the beauty of a their musical life together.
