Lucille Kincaid Named WDIY Classical Music Librarian
WDIY volunteer Lucille Kincaid has been named music librarian for the WDIY Janet Goloub Classical Music Library. Kincaid is a weekly host of WDIY Classics and will continue in her hosting duties as well.
In her new role as music librarian, Kincaid will maintain the current library, screen new material including both CDs and vinyl records, and take recommendations for additions to the library.
"Lucille is well-known in music education and classical music theater," said WDIY's Operations Director Neil Hever. "She could teach all of us a thing or two about music. We are happy to have her on board."
Kincaid's background is in music education, having worked as a music educator in New Jersey public schools for 33 years. The last 18 years of her career were spent as vocal music director of Sparta High School in Sparta, New Jersey. During her tenure there, her choirs performed in festivals and workshops across the US, Canada, and Europe.
As a pianist, she has accompanied numerous county, regional, All State, and All Eastern choirs which afforded her the opportunity to perform in Heinz Hall, Meyerhoff Hall, and Carnegie Hall.
Kincaid has been heavily involved with the production of musicals for many years, having contributed to over 100 performances as either a pit musician, vocal coach or musical director/conductor.
Since moving to Pennsylvania from New Jersey in 2005, Kincaid has worked with various area high schools and community theater groups while also serving as a regular music director at the PA Playhouse in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. She became a regular weekly on-air host of WDIY Classics in 2015.
Kincaid takes over the role of classical music librarian from Martin Boksenbaum who passed away last month.
