We are heartbroken to report the passing of Cécile Casali (née Cécile Farmer) on April 29, 2022 after a battle with cancer.

Cécile was a 2010 UW recipient of the Bachelor of Music degree in voice, student of Tom Harper, and a favorite student of former SOM Director JoAnn Taricani, in whose Rennaissance Ensemble Cécile sang regularly. As an undergraduate, Cécile performed the role of Lisetta in the UW Opera mainstage production of Haydn’s “Il Mondo della Luna” directed by Noel Koran.  

In 2012, Cécile entered Law School at the University of Virginia and after passing the New York State Bar Exam, worked as a lawyer in a large firm in New York City, specializing in cross-border regulations and compliance.  Cécile is survived by her husband, two young daughters, as well as three brothers and two sisters. Our heartfelt condolences go out to her family as we hold Cécile’s memory in honor.
