In Memoriam: Emmy Homburger

The Women’s Musical Club of Toronto and its Foundation mourn the death on December 11, 2019 of one of its Great Women.

President from the 108th to 110th seasons, member and supporter for many years, Emmy made major contributions of time and talent to the festivities of the centennial celebrations of 1997-98, which included the first Career Development Award, and the gala concert whose financial success resulted in the establishment of the Foundation.

Our condolences go to the family, already grieving the loss of Emmy’s husband Walter earlier this year.

A Memorial Reception will be held at Mount Pleasant Cemetery on Friday, 20 December, 2019, 12:30 PM – 2:30 PM

  1. Emmy was one of the most gracious, thoughtful, sincere, and kind people I have ever met. Her contributions to the WMCT over many years were transformative and deeply appreciated by all. She will be sorely missed, and most fondly remembered.

  2. Emmy was mostly responsible for my involvement with the WMCT. I remember attending the first meeting she chaired and wanting to be part of the group she was leading. She will be deeply missed.
