Monica was an inspiration right to the end, with her grace and courage.

I’ve just lost my piano soul-mate.

I agree with this. She dedicated herself to the recital keeping it running and participated in every one. It feels right to me.

I am so sad to hear this news. It is so rare these days to know someone who is truly a "real" person that cares so much about others. Her kindness touched so many people here on this forum and probably many other places as well.

You will be sadly missed my friend, but never forgotten.

My heart aches tonight.

I feel terribly bereft, despite never having met her IRL. She was a wise and compassionate presence on the forum for many years, and I always admired her singleminded determination to pursue the all-Enauidi all-the-time musical path she loved so much. Accepted piano pedagogy wisdom to the winds, she played better than many of us ever will.

Love, hugs, and more hugs to her husband and children, if they are reading this. They feel this loss more than we ever could.

Admins, delete this line if you must, but F**K Cancer Anyway! We've all lost too many loved ones to it.


Please step aside. You're standing in your own way.

So very sorry to hear of her passing. I hope it was quiet and surrounded by family (perhaps with Einaudi playing in the background).

She was a wonderful presence here and will be missed.

Monica participated in 55 ABF quarterly recitals, and was the admin for most of them.

Here is the best tribute I can think of for her - her 55 recital performances:

I'm so sad to read this news. Thanks for letting us know Ken. Sybille, renaming the ABF Quarterly Recitals after Monica is a wonderful idea.

I agree with Sibylle, KevinM, and barbaram. I think that it would be a fitting tribute to have the quarterly recital permanently named after her, who gave of herself to make it happen and always herself participated - the "Monica K Quarterly Recital." Or if her family will permit, we can use her real name.

Hopping over from my normal hang out in the piano forum.

I remember Monica K's first posts here on PW. I remember her choosing the Mason & Hamlin and I remember that Athena was also playing (she was a child at the time).

Monica was way too young! I am so sorry to hear this.

RIP Monica. So sad to read the news this morning.
I second renaming the quarterly recital in her name, it is a befitting honor.

So many of us have been affected by C, and with one piano friend who passed 1 year a go, I dedicate one of my pieces each year to him. Great way to remember the contributions people made to my piano journey.

No, I'm saddened. Monica was always kind to me and I've always enjoyed her posts, even though we've never met. I am going to miss her. God bless and RIP Monica.

Very sad. A loss for the world and for our community. Monica lived with class and died with dignity. She was an inspiration to us all. I agree it would be fitting to name the recital after her so that her memory lives on in this forum. It was her brainchild and her hard work that brought it to so many of us and it would be a great tribute.

My thoughts and prayers go out to her family during this time, and to those who were close to her on PW. She played with all her heart, even in her last days, and she was an inspiration to us all.

I concur with the idea to name the quarterlies after her.

Rest in peace, Monica.
