Neva Pilgrim graduated magna cum laude from Hamline University, received a Master of Music from Yale University, and studied at Vienna Academy of Music on a Ditson Fellowship. But what is probably of more interest, and perhaps of more importance, is the fact that she grew up in a large family on a farm in Minnesota, and learned from early on what hard work meant. In addition to her wonderful musicianship and dedication to music, she has always had the energy and the imagination to make dreams come true—not only her own dreams, but the dreams of the vast multitude of composers whose music she has sung and promoted. A quick count of her repertoire reveals that she has sung the music of well over one hundred 20th century composers, and since many of these composers are represented by two or more works, the degree of her contribution to the music of our time is incalculable.
—Richard Wernick
