In memoriam: Charles Lynam

Charles Lynam, who retired from UNCG in 2005, died June 8. He joined the Music faculty in 1964, was the recipient of a UNCG Alumni Teaching Excellence Award in 1979, and was named Teacher of the Year in the School of Music for 1999. Many of his students have won vocal competitions at the local, district, regional and national levels and are now successful professional singers; numerous others are teaching at leading colleges and universities. A voice teacher, he also had been an active performer during his career, singing with such groups as the Eastern Philharmonic, Charlotte and Greensboro symphony orchestras and the Grassroots and Chautauqua opera companies. The Charles A. Lynam Vocal Competition is named in his honor.
