The New York Times has described her playing as “spirited,” and praised her “soaring recorder, gorgeously played…” Priscilla was part of the onstage band for the 2013-2014 Shakespeare on Broadway productions of Twelfth Night and Richard III, starring Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry. She directed the Early Music Ensemble at Temple University for two years, and is on the faculty of the Madison (WI) Early Music Festival, where she has led recorder and alta capella ensembles and a survey of sacred Italian polyphony. For seven years, Priscilla was the soprano at various New York City parishes that celebrate the Latin mass, and still sings occasionally for the mass around NY and CT.

She received her master’s degree from The Juilliard School, where she was a member of the inaugural class of Juilliard Historical Performance and a baroque oboe student of Gonzalo Ruiz. She received her bachelor’s degree from Temple University, where she was a modern oboe student of the late Louis Rosenblatt.

January 2018 Newsletter

Dear Early Music Friends,

Thinking ahead to January and the Winter Party.  Please let Doris Loughner know if you and maybe a few friends are planning to come to the January 6th party. We are planning the seating and supplies and need to know sooner rather than later! We could also use more Soupe.  Five people have signed up; we need four more.  I’m attaching the flyer again.  And let Mark Schiffer know if you and/or your ensemble are planning on playing (ten minute performance time).  If you weren’t able to make the December meeting please be sure to be with us at the January 2nd meeting so you can practice what the recorder orchestra will be playing under Jerry Schwartz’ able baton.  Looking forward to a fabulous 2018!

See you January 2nd for the chapter meeting and on January 6th for the Party,

Patty Johnson, SRS newsletter editor
