Donald also known as Donal to many was a world-renowned pianist, vocal coach, and educator. He began playing piano at a young age. Donald earned his Master of Science at The Juilliard School. Donald began his international career with his European solo debut at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. He traveled the world on concert tours with the most talented singers and instrumentalists on the world stage, including Martina Arroyo, Grace Bumbry, Maureen Forrester, Graziella Sciutti, Justino Diaz, Michael Rabin, Tossy Spivakovsky, and Gloria Davy.

After living in Europe for a decade, Donald returned to the US and served on the music faculty at various schools, including his alma mater. From 1964-1994 he was on faculty at the school where he would play the most formative role, not only in the lives of his students, but in the history of the school itself; for thirty years he was a member of the faculty in Manhattan School of Music’s Opera, Vocal Literature, Music History, Ensemble and Accompanying Departments. He founded the Accompanying Department in 1970, and served as the chairman of the department from 1980 until his retirement in 1994.

Donald co-authored The Songs of Max Reger: A Guide and Study (Scarecrow Press, 2008), the definitive text on prolific composer Max Reger’s (1873-1916) body of songs, the most famous of which is the Christmas favorite Maria Wiegenlied. The text is a comprehensive study of Reger’s songs, and for each includes the year of composition, vocal range, tempo, the poem in its original German as well as the English and IPA translations, and analysis and reflections from the authors. It is a valuable source for any musician studying Reger, and an especially valuable one for singers and pianists.
