Volume 121, No. 2February, 2021

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing on Jan. 15 of Fredrica Levinson (Bunny Beck), 84, our beloved mother, sister, grandmother and aunt. A jazz pianist, composer, longtime member of Local 802, and so much more, Bunny was a dazzling woman, full of passion, talent, fun and joy. She is survived by her daughters, Elizabeth Henrichsen (Neil) and Suzanne Levinson, sister Jacqueline Guttman and grandchildren Kayla, Jed and Carter. There will be a private graveside service with other arrangements at a later date. Donations in Bunny‚Äôs memory can be made to the New York Composers Circle or the charity of your choice.
