HUMPHREY--Mary Lou. It is with great sadness that we note the passing of our good friend and colleague Mary Lou, who passed away on December 23 after a battle with cancer. She was a passionate musicologist who specialized in 20th century music. Her career began at New York City Opera, working closely with Beverly Sills during her term as General Director. She later joined the staff of G Schirmer, working on their international catalog, working with established American composers, and nurturing the careers of up-and- coming contemporary musicians. Memorial contributions are welcome at

for all their help and support. City Opera Alumni
