Carl Orff Canada
In Memoriam: Mary Robinson Ramsay 1947 – 2017
It is with profound sadness that Music for Children – Carl Orff Canada – Musique pour enfants acknowledges the passing of Mary Robinson Ramsay on December 13, 2017 following a brief illness. A former Editor of Ostinato, as well as President, Past President, Honorary Life Member, and member of the Advisory Board, Mary's service to Music for Children – Carl Orff Canada – Musique pour enfants began in 1979 and continued until the time of her passing. Mary's legacy, and her gifts to education are immeasurable. Her dedication to quality music education and to high standards formed the cornerstone of her vision for Carl Orff Canada. An unerring grasp of procedures and structures, combined with an ability to connect with others through humour and open communication enabled Mary to make inroads in many areas of the national organization. Mary Robinson Ramsay's life and work exemplified a devotion to connections between people, and to bringing out the best – in herself, in others, and in her professional endeavours.
