TWU music professor honored as Sigma Alpha Iota Member Laureate



DENTON — Sigma Alpha Iota (SAI), an international music honorary fraternity, recently recognized Texas Woman’s University music professor Joan Wall for her outstanding contributions to music by naming her a Member Laureate.

A Member Laureate is an initiated member of the fraternity who has achieved international distinction in the music profession. The students of Iota Omega, TWU’s fraternity chapter, nominated Ms. Wall for the honor.

“I was surprised and deeply pleased,” Ms. Wall said of being named a Member Laureate. “When I realize that the students nominated me and worked with the national board for almost a year to assemble the paperwork, I am most touched. I want to thank all the people who believed that my musical life was worthy of this high honor.”

A mezzo-soprano, Ms. Wall sang operatically as a principal performer at the Metropolitan Opera Company of New York and the Deutsche Oper Berlin. She has performed concerts throughout the United States and in Canada, Mexico and Europe. Among her numerous publications is “Excellence in Singing,” a five-volume series for vocal pedagogy.

Ms. Wall has taught at TWU for more than 40 years and also serves as coordinator of vocal studies. She is one of the 20 prominent American vocal teachers featured in the 2002 book, “A Spectrum of Voices: Prominent American Vocal Teachers Discuss the Teaching of Singing.”
