We are greatly saddened to report the death of Gilda Barston.
Gilda meant so much to so many people, it is difficult to express the impact of her parting. In over forty years of teaching at the Music Institute of Chicago she was a friend, mentor, leader and advocate for the highest standards in music education. Her legacy as a teacher and teacher trainer is immense. In the face of tremendous adversity her dedication and love for her students was an inspiration to us all.
Her accomplishments are many. Gilda was an artist level cellist who studied with Leonard Rose at The Juilliard School. As a strong advocate of the Suzuki Philosophy, she served as Chair of the Suzuki Association of the Americas, CEO of the International Suzuki Association and Director and Artistic Director of the Chicago Suzuki Institute. Gilda was a celebrated teacher of teachers, training and mentoring hundreds of young cellists who have spread about the world to become leaders in their field.
