I heard this story on NPR just now on the death of Dika Newlin, who was a music teacher at VCU, one of the last (if not the absolute last) students of the composer Arnold Schoenberg, a “punk rocker” in her 70s, and just generally kind of a character (and I mean that in a good way, basically). Interestingly enough, this woman was the “kinda crazy woman” who lived on the first floor of the building where Annette and I shared an apartment when we lived together in Richmond. Small world. Anyway, read more and see pictures here, and RIP, Prof. Newlin. I hardly knew ye.
