Emily Metcalf passed away March 31st, surrounded by a loving community of music and meditation. Emily was a cellist with the Hartford Symphony, a Music Together instructor, a teacher of cello and improvisation, a founding member of Music For People’s Musicianship Program, a recording artist, and a kind soul with an enormous heart. She is survived by her husband James Oshinsky, their daughters Breanna and Kira, stepson Josh, sister Janet and nephew Justin. While cancer shortened her time with us, her influence is widely felt by all who were touched by her gentle presence and her joyful music. There will be a memorial service to celebrate her life on April 12 th at 12 noon at the Ethical Humanist Society, 38 Old Country Road, Garden City, NY. Contributions towards a scholarship fund will be accepted at MusicforPeople.org (1 877 44 MUSIC).

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jim, Breanna, Kira, Josh, Janet, Justin and her Music For People family. We are all richer for having known Emily!

Testimonials
“Parents and children alike will flash a big smile at the sight of the ‘ABZ’s of Musical Instruments’ a most unique and captivation technique of introducing children to music. The dazzling bright colors highlighting the alphabet, as well as the wide selection of instruments, will educate, delight and capture the attention of both parent and child. The extensive glossary of the many unfamiliar instruments adds to the usefulness of the book.” —Johnnie Osburn Dent, Veteran Librarian and Recipient of The New York Times’ Librarian Award 2001 for Outstanding Community Service.
