Marylou Speaker Churchill

November 11, 2009 at 2:28 PM

Marylou Speaker Churchill died yesterday. In her career as principal second violinist of the Boston Symphony, and as a sought-after teacher, she led a life of beauty that profoundly changed the lives of those she touched. She lived by maxims as simple as they were profound: "Begin with joy," and "Perfect love casteth out fear." Her friends were also her students in this, and are humbled by her example.

I didn't know her but I do know that we need more people like her! Also since she was a teacher, she left something extraordinairy: her knowledge and philosophy to her students. This will be transmitted from generation to generation assuming that at least one of her student became a teacher.   Hope she rests in peace on a soft cloud (can't really know if there's something or not after life)  Yes, the best musicians are often the most simple and humble persons.
