A beloved and remarkable woman, Judy Solomon quietly slipped away from us on December 22, 2007, leaving us all with broken hearts but fond memories. She is warmly remembered and deeply missed by her family, dear friends and all the students whose lives she touched with her grace, her love and her wit. Her contributions to the world of music were many, and she passed away too soon when she still had so much to contribute.

Judy taught piano, accompanying and music theory at Texas Christian University for over 30 years. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors from Rutgers University (Douglass College) where she was a piano student of Thomas Richner. She received a Master of Music degree from Yale University. At Yale, Judy studied piano with Donald Currier and theory with Allen Forte and Mel Powell. She did additional study with Guiomar Novaes and accompanying study with Norman Shetler in Vienna. She also attended the Dorothy Taubman Piano Institute and the College Music Society's Institute of Music Theory Pedagogy Studies.

Judy collaborated with both singers and instrumentalists. She recorded two CDs: The Woodwind Sonatas of Paul Hindemith with oboist Noah Knepper, and Songs for Tenor and Piano with Roger Bryant. Judy authored numerous articles on various aspects of performance and music theory that have been published in Clavier, American Music Teacher, and the Journal of Research in Singing. She was also a devoted editor of the School of Music newsletter, Da Capo and, towards the end of her career, was in charge of the Wednesday afternoon student recital series.

During her career at TCU, Judy distinguished herself for excellence in teaching. In 1996, she was selected to represent TCU's College of Fine Arts as a finalist for the Chancellor's Award for Distinguished Teaching. In 1996 and 2000, she was a finalist for the Deans' Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Judy was a long-time member of Temple Beth-El, Fort Worth. She is interred in the Beth-El section of Greenwood Memorial Park, Fort Worth.

And tomorrow the sun will shine again
And on the way which I shall follow
She will unite us again lucky ones
As all around us the earth breathes in the sun.
Slowly, silently, we will climb down
To the wide beach and the blue waves.
In silence, we will look in each other's eyes
And the mute stillness of happiness will sink upon us.

When I too long have looked upon your face,
Wherein for me a brightness unobscured
Save by the mists of brightness has its place,
And terrible beauty not to be endured,
I turn away reluctant from your light,
And stand irresolute, a mind undone,
A silly, dazzled thing deprived of sight
From having looked too long upon the sun.
Then is my daily life a narrow room
In which a little while, uncertainly,
Surrounded by impenetrable gloom,
Among familiar things grown strange to me
Making my way, I pause; and feel, and hark,
Till I become accustomed to the dark.

And you as well must die, belovèd dust,
And all your beauty stand you in no stead;
This flawless, vital hand, this perfect head,
This body of flame and steel, before the gust
Of Death, or under his autumnal frost,
Shall be as any leaf, be no less dead
Than the first leaf that fell,–this wonder fled,
Altered, estranged, disintegrated, lost.
Nor shall my love avail you in your hour.
In spite of all my love, you will arise
Upon that day and wander down the air
Obscurely as the unattended flower,
It mattering not how beautiful you were,
Or how belovèd above all else that dies.
December 22nd, 2014
Loving you and remembering everything on this 7th anniversary of your passing. I love you forever.
