Hilary’s work, “Moon Full, Tide Low,” was featuredlast month through our partnership with the Flute Examiner (, and her three album releases from 2022 were included in our 2022 Album Release Round-Up just a few weeks ago. Hilary was an inspiring, prolific composer and has made an indelible mark on the NYWC community and beyond. She will be missed.
