Lucille Harris

We received the sad news that Lucille Harris, Instructor Emerita of Music, passed away at Salemtowne Retirement Community on 2 August 2014. Lucille taught piano at Wake Forest from 1957 to 1991. The Department’s annual Giles-Harris Competitions in Music Performance honor her many years of service to the university and her dedication to our students. A memorial service was held in her honor on 9 August 2014, at Salemtowne, with Professors Richard Heard, tenor, and Peter Kairoff, piano, providing special music. She will be honored with a special tribute in the spring 2015 edition of Music Notes.
