Lois Lillienstein    

Lois L.

We at MITS are deeply saddened at learning of the passing of Lois Lillienstein and send our sincerest condolences to her family, Sharon and Bram, and friends, and all who were touched and inspired by her love of music and song. Lois was a tremendous educator and talent who was instrumental in the founding of MITS and influenced the careers of a great number of artists who enjoy performing for and with children. We will miss her greatly but her spirit will live forever in the songs we sing together.
