As many of you may know by now through Facebook and Musical Toronto, Royal Conservatory of Music voice teacher and long time NATS member Donna Sherman passed away on Thursday, July 4, 2013 after a short battle with cancer.
Donna was a driving force in the world of voice teaching having taught many current professional singers and teachers. Colleagues and students at the Royal Conservatory of Music as well as those she has inspired will miss her.
Music Reviewer and Blogger John Terauds has written a brief but lovely article on Donna that you can find here. Included at the end of the article are many comments from the voice community.
I know that we will miss Donna’s presence in NATS and the broader world of voice teaching. May she rest in peace.
