Editor’s Note: Kendall Feeney’s memorial service has been moved from Saturday, April 8, to Sunday, April 9.
Eastern Washington University mourns the passing of longtime EWU Music Department faculty member Kendall Feeney. An accomplished pianist, Feeney came to Eastern in 1990 and most recently was director of the EWU Contemporary Music Ensemble.
Feeney leaves a lasting impact on Eastern and the Spokane arts community. As a piano educator, she was nationally recognized for her work with injured musicians. She frequently performed piano recitals, appeared with the Spokane Symphony, and was active with the Northwest Bach Festival.
In 1997, Feeney was awarded the Individual Artist of the Year by the Spokane Arts Commission and is included in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in American Women. She was a frequent reader on The Bookshelf on Spokane Public Radio, and has also been featured on the long-running NPR program Performance Today.
From 1991 to 2003, Feeney was artistic director and founder of the critically acclaimed Northwest concert series ZEPHYR: A New Design for Classical Music.
Feeney’s memorial service will be at 7 p.m., Sunday, April 9, at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 4340 W. Fort George Wright Drive in Spokane. Those in the campus community who knew her are all welcome to attend.
The university sends its deepest condolences to her husband, EWU English Professor Anthony Flinn.
