In Memoriam: Jane Hawkins Raimi, 1950-2017

Jane Hawkins Raimi, a long-time faculty member of the department of music at Duke University, died late last month. She was 67 years old.

A native of Swansea in South Wales, Professor Hawkins Raimi graduated with distinction from the Royal Academy of Music in London where she studied piano and cello. She joined the faculty at Duke University in 1978 and taught piano and chamber music. Professor Hawkins Raimi served as chair of the department of music from 2010 to 2014. She also served two terms as director of performance for the music department.

Stephen Jaffe, interim chair of the department of music at Duke, stated that “Jane was a teacher-performer admired by countless students of piano and chamber music, and she was also admired as a funny and very agreeable colleague. She had a way of bringing us together by reminding us that our enterprise could be shared and celebrated.”
