The Music of Dr. Tammy Lum Featured on WWFM.org., the Classical Network

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Tuesday April 4, 2017


The music of Dr. Tammy Lum, Nyack Rockland School of Music professor was featured on the classical music network WWFM.org Tuesday, April 4 at 10:00 p.m. The program, “Between the Keys with Jed Distler” will present a special segment on piano ballades and ballads.

Distler was a guest lecturer for the recent Nyack campus Hudson River Pianofest, a day-long program developed by Dr. Lum (pictured at piano). He says, “Back in 2015 I presented an episode about the piano ballade genre, with a few piano “ballads” thrown in for good measure. I thought it was a pretty original idea, but what I didn’t know was that my pianist colleague Tammy Lum had made a CD devoted to “Ballades and Ballads.” I hadn’t seen Tammy for many decades when we recently reconnected, and her busy musical life is thriving more than ever as a performer and educator. Our reunion inspired me to revisit the topic of ballades and ballads for this week’s edition of “Between the Keys.” Among the work of several other musicians, Distler adds the program will feature “Tammy Lum, firing on all cylinders in Ponce’s Balada Mexicana.”
