TAYLOR--Billy. The Board of Directors and Staff of Young Audiences Arts for Learning mourn the passing of our longtime colleague and friend, Billy Taylor, and extend heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. Billy served on the Young Audiences National Advisory Committee for over 40 years. Billy will continue to be known as a world class pianist and composer, but, first and foremost, he was an extraordinary teacher and educator. He will be sadly missed. Mrs. Maurice R. Greenberg, Chairman Nathan W. Pearson, President David A. Dik, National Executive Director
