Harris  Shilakowsky, composer

Sharon Gewirtz

a serious professional violinist,

teacher of the violin

friend and supporter of fine music.

This piece was written to remember her and her music.

It was premiered by the composer at a memorial concert on

June 26 in First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church in Arlington.

The music contains gentle references to other composers and Jewish influences.

I intended it to be solemn yet not overly sad, but rather to reflect on the beauty and joy that

music brings to our lives and that Sharon brought to so many, as shown by the outpouring of expression from

so many friends and associates.
