"The quarterly ABF recitals are dedicated to the memory of Monica Kern Harris, our long-time recital moderator. Monica served as the administrator for 53 quarterly recitals.

In addition she was an active and loved contributor to the Pianoworld forum. We owe Monica a debt of gratitude for her instrumental role in getting the recitals started and keeping them running for so many years."

Since Piano*Dad has pointed out the name she preferred to go by in life, the internal paragraph can be further tweaked to be:

"The quarterly ABF recitals are dedicated to the memory of Monica J. Kern, our long-time recital moderator. 'Monica K.' served as the administrator for 53 quarterly recitals.

The above, taken with a recital name of ‘The Monica K. Quarterly Recital' should nicely combine all the points of view on the naming. We should consult with Athena though. Someone have Athena on their Facebook friends list who could ask her if these two things would work for the family?

I think it is good, although I would go with the American “favorite” and not the British “favourite.”

I think “loved” should be “beloved.”

This version sums up everything and is a nice tribute to Monica. I like it and would vote for it.

One caveat however... It is important to continue to recognize and credit the efforts of several other founding members who originally started our online recital [conception, programming, hosting, archiving] contributing a considerable amount of time and resources in doing so. This has been done in a separate paragraph and included in every recital. Their efforts as well as the history of the recital should continue to be preserved this way.

Once the recital had been created and working, it needed to be administered to the group in a way that worked for everyone. This is where Monica stepped in and she never looked back. From our very first recital she was there. And as a result, we are all the better for it.

Monica did a better job in this position than anyone could have hoped for and as a result our ABF recitals became more successful than anyone at the time could have imagined. Monicas contributions and administering of the recital had a huge impact on its success and this tribute to her is not only fitting, it has been earned...many times over!

The text at recitals.pianoworld.com has the history and credits the founding members. We shouldn't get rid of that history, just add to it.

Yes, the proposed text was only proposed as an addition, not a substitution.

In her first few years her user name was Monica Kern. She had it changed at some point because she felt uncomfortable with her full name.

So, I don’t play Einaudi. Never have. BUT, I slid an Einaudi piece past the goalposts this week in ballet class in honor of Monica. The classes I accompany for require a rather firm classical foundation, but I did find some Einaudi excerpts which would work. I did it in a class where the teacher is not appreciative of this style of music and yet she liked this one so much she stopped class after I played it to ask me what piece it had been.

I hope wherever Monica is, she was happy about it!

Sad news. I've not listened to the recent recitals but will now make a point of listening to recital #55. I also agree the renaming would be a nice tribute to work Monica put in for all of us on the recitals.

Monica is the reason I started listening to Einaudi several years ago. Her enthusiasm for the recitals will be missed frown

Just to confirm the agreement of the ABF members, I believe this was what was finally agreed.

New name of quarterly recital to be used in titles and subject lines and on the recital portal: "The Monica K. Quarterly Recital"

Text (enw10 version) to be added to the recital portal website, the recital announcement post, and the recital thread (but not in replacement of the existing text providing the history of the recital and naming other significant contributors) :
