GUEST,Dr. Eugene Michael Dangelo, Music Educator Lyr Req: Miserlou (63* d) RE: Lyr Req: Miserlou 20 Dec 04

I would simply like to add a note about Mrs. Brunhilde Eilers Dorsch. I had the good fortune to receive both my Bachelor of Science Degree in Music Education(1977) and my Master of Music degree in Composition (1979) at the Duquesne University School of Music, and was a Eurythmics student of Mrs. Dorsch. She taught there from 1938 to 1980, and was also the moderator of the Music Educators' National Conference Student Chapter # 159, of which I was President from 1975-77. This, I had the excellent opportunity to work closely with Mrs. Dorsch, who was a great professor, and an excellent individual. She taught ALL of us the "Miserlou," and did so with great gusto and pride. I was present at her retirement celebration in 1980, and she ended that celebration with one last great snaking dance of the Miserlou with all of us who were present. She was agile to the last. After retirement, it is my understanding that she moved to Texas near her son. I believe she may have passed away, since I see that the DAlcroze Society rightly has a memorial scholarship in her honor. She made the Miserlou a happily unforgettable part of each of her students' lives.
