More sadness: US mezzo dies of rapid cancermain
We regret to share news of the death of Elender Wall, a Berlin-based mezzo-soprano from San Francisco.
Elender had been open about her cancer and very positive, but a few weeks ago she learned that it had spread to her back, liver and lungs. Two days ago she was hospitalised with an infection and today she died.
Aside from opera roles, she attracted media attention for a song cycle titled The Poetry of Donald Rumsfeld.
Our condolences to her fiance, Chris, and many friends.
