1.  Jorja Fleezanis Obituary, an American violinist – Death

“Heartbroken to learn of Jorja Fleezanis’ passing yesterday. Jorja had a profound influence on me during my time at IU, and served on my doctoral committee before her retirement. Her trademark no-nonsense feedback was invaluable, and the warmth of her support was unforgettable. She was a force in rehearsal, and though we all knew she spoke with the experience of a long and glass-ceiling-busting career as a concertmaster, there was never any ego behind any of her words, just immediate and effective musical solutions. Conductors sweated a bit more on the podium when she was present no matter who they were, but I loved working with Jorja and I heard the difference she made. Her comments and instructions adorn many margins of my scores, hastily scribbled in an attempt not to miss any of the wisdom she rapidly delivered.
The orchestral industry has benefited immeasurably from her impact, and she will be dearly missed.” Source
