It is with profound sadness
that we at Joy In Singing announce the passing of our great mentor, teacher and friend,
Please join us in remembering this glorious musician who brought us all together to share in the love and performance of The Art Song.
The family is planning a memorial in spring 2020. Watch this space for the announcement.
Our condolences to the family and friends of GEORGE VASSOS, founder of The Cleveland Institute Art Song Festival, educator, and long standing Joy In Singing supporter and advisory board member. Rest In Peace,
you will be missed by many.
