Hungate, pianist/educator…… “…genuine, lovely, sensitive…” -- Elie Siegmeister, composer/educator…… “Not only… all the traditional skills of speed, articulation, clarity, but… a wonderful sensitivity to tone and phrase… turn[s] notes into something that lives and breathes.  [The] music is alive…  There is no getting away from this cleanness and clarity – this freshness – it is like standing on the top of a mountain.” -- Beryl A.

Her training had been top notch and her performance was clean and intelligent… excellent qualities in her interpretation… She worked extremely hard on a difficult program… a real knuckle-buster… to great success… She was reluctant to extol her virtues… [but] had nothing to be modest about… The good really died young in her case and I shall always miss her.” -- Morton Estrin, pianist/educator…… “…intelligent and vibrant… The combined strength of her intellectual and expressive abilities was always evident… Her delight at each new insight and enthusiasm… was an inspiration to me.”-- Blanche Abram, pianist/educator…… “…a very talented fine person… we affectionately called her 'fingers Pinsley' because of her fine technical prowess at the piano… She will always remain in my memory.” -- George E. Waln, clarinetist/educator (Dir., Oberlin Woodwind Ensemble)…… “…perform[s] so magnificently… How wonderful a memory for those of us who had the privilege of hearing her…” -- Brahna C. Hutchins…… “…a remarkably talented musician… a clarity and depth like that of fine wine…  Her soul shined through her fingertips, and there was a lot of beauty in everything she played, whether it was solo music, accompaniment, or chamber music.” -- Carol Block Whited……
