Pamela Cook Passes Away

12 July 2013

The choral and musical world was saddened to learn of the death of Pamela Cook in the early hours of this morning, after suffering a stroke last week.

Pamela was held in high regard as an international authority on vocal and choral techniques. Her successful teaching career included positions in universities and music conservatoires across the country, with many of her students currently holding soloist positions in prestigious British and European opera houses.

In 1968, Pamela founded girls’ choir Cantamus. Initially a by-product of her work as head of vocal studies at Birmingham Conservatoire, within three years Cantamus won its first major international prize. Today the choir is made up of 43 teenage girls and is known as one of the most dynamic young choirs in the country. Pamela remained director of the choir until her death.

Pamela’s inspiration was drawn from her pure love of the human voice. ‘It’s a constant source of joy and amazement to me that the human voice can be beautiful, warm, tender, dramatic, exciting, sensual and vibrant – and this possibility is available to everyone who sings,’ she said. ‘What a power-house the conductor has at her finger-tips!’

In 1984, Pamela was appointed MBE. Her work as a teacher and adjudicator took her all over the world, where she has sat on panels of international vocal competitions, delivered lectures in vocal physiology, and coached choirs. Her passion, energy and complete dedication will no doubt be missed – but her legacy lives on in the thousands of singers she inspired during her lifetime.
