Happy Birthday Margaret Harshaw

Margaret Harshaw

Considred the doyenne of voice teachers during her lifetime, the indomitable Margaret Harshaw was born on this date in 1909, taught many singers who went on to have significant careers, and changed a great many lives—including the life of this blogger. A force to be reckoned with, her teaching—which she understood to be that of the great Garcías through her teacher Anna E. Schoen-René—is still causing waves throughout the space-time continuum of vocal pedagogy. 

Happy Birthday Miss Harshaw!
