“Shirley Hicks was a firebird, always inclusive and feisty. She would love a good spicy conversation and find humor as she went about her business. She was an immensely talented musician and could move seamlessly from a collaborative piece into her own rhythm and beat. Her life was like that too. She was first herself - critical but constructively so - and such fun to be around. She was creative, talented, with great vitality. ” - Laura Johnston Kohl
