New York Times, reported November 20, 2018: Blanche Burton-Lyles, Pianist and Flame Keeper, Dies at 85.
Blanche Burton-Lyles, an accomplished classical pianist who devoted much of her energy later in life to preserving the legacy of the woman whom she called her mentor, the opera singer Marian Anderson, died on Nov. 12 in Philadelphia. She was 85.

Jillian Patricia Pirtle, Ms. Burton-Lyles’s successor as overseer of the National Marian Anderson Museum in Philadelphia, said the cause was heart failure.

Ms. Burton-Lyles had an extensive performing career that began when she was a child. It included a Young People’s Concert in November 1947, when she was 14, at Carnegie Hall, at which she played with the New York Philharmonic, conducted by Rudolph Ganz. The museum’s biography of her says she was the first black female pianist to perform with the orchestra at Carnegie.

She was the first African American in the history of the company to be invited to perform with the esteemed ballet company.”
