Gleaner Writer RECKORD on WHYLIE
“You can’t capture the totality of Marjorie Whylie (a St. Andrew High School Trailblazer) in a phrase, not even if it refers to her as “a national treasure”. That one was used in a recent Gleaner article by music scholar Herbie Miller.
You can’t capture her in a sentence either, even one like: “She is a multitalented musicologist, pianist, percussionist, jazz singer and academician.” That sentence was written by the equally multifaceted Rex Nettleford, late artistic director of the National Dance Theatre Company (NDTC).”
