TROY Lilajane Frascarelli nee Hiatt died December 20, 2020 in Troy, New York from advanced dementia at the age of 91. Angelo Frascarelli, her husband of 60+ years, preceded her on May 29, 2016 from bacterial pneumonia. The girl from Winfield, Kansas and the first-generation Italian boy from Chicago Heights, IL met as freshmen at the Eastman School of Music.

Lilajane and Angelo retired in July 1994 after 24 years of teaching music and conducting ensembles at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. They have been faculty, orchestra and chamber music performers, and conductors in New York (Rochester Philharmonic, Shaporelli String Quartet, Albany Winds & Strings, Capital Chamber Artists), Indiana (Ball State Teachers College, Muncie Symphony), Mississippi (Mississippi Southern College, Amphion String Quartet, Baton Rouge, LA Symphony; Memphis, TN Symphonietta), and Pennsylvania (Reading and Lancaster Symphonies, PA Ballet Orchestra, Cherry Hill, NJ Philharmonic). Lilajane was a member of the Albany Symphony Orchestra for 33 years.

Lilajane and Angelo are survived by their daughters, Joan Quinque Horgan, her partner, James Barber of Columbiaville, NY, Anne Ellen Frascarelli of Pelham, NY and their grandson, James Theodore Horgan of Clinton Township, Michigan.

We would not have been able to honor our parent’s last wishes without the indispensable assistance of Mandy Hudson. Family friends Mark, Erin, Beverly, Tony, Andy and others too numerous to list have also earned our heartfelt thanks. Robin Connolly, Donna Heffernan, Kevin King, Elizabeth Hanlon and Jean Endryk provided essential in-home medical care.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Angelo and Lilajane’s memory to the Eastman School of Music, Dean’s Violin Fund. Your gift can be mailed to the University of Rochester, Office of Gifts and Donor Records, Box 270032, Rochester, NY 14627 or made online at Remember failure is not an option “Redo” and “Music, not for a living but for a lifetime.”
