We were tremendously saddened to learn of the untimely passing of recent alum, Dr. Lisa Foerster. Lisa, her children: Emma and Thomas Hamel; and her sister:  Lorraine Alstererg all died as the result of an automobile accident on Wednesday, May 18, 2016.

Lisa completed the Doctor of Musical Arts degree at UNCG in 2012.  She was a Hayes Fellowship recipient and a Graduate Teaching Assistant, and she was a student of Dr. Nancy Walker.  During her time at UNCG Lisa was a vibrant and positive presence, making significant contributions to the voice program through her teaching and performance.  In 2012, she was appointed to the position of Assistant Professor of Voice at Ohio University’s School of Music.

Plans for memorial observance are as yet incomplete.  A complete notice may be viewed at Ohio University’s website.
