She lacked nothing in conveying the complexities and growth of her character.
– William T. Walker, Classical Voice of North Carolina
The performance, portrayal, and passion for and ability to pass on one’s knowledge of music is complex, if nothing else. The consummate musician is not only able to perform, but is also able to portray a myriad of personae, possesses great passion for both the ink on the page and the expression it represents, and can impart this knowledge to young, aspiring musicians. This, dear visitors, friends, and colleagues, is my goal.
Welcome to the website of Hope Fairchild Thacker, and welcome to the world of a musician, wife, mother, performer, and teacher. May we all be so blessed as to experience the many facets of life in order to be a more complete portrayer of the art form we love so much.
