Alison Tung graduated from Wheaton College in Norton, MA, and received a Master's Degree in Modern English Literature from Queen Mary College, University of London. The year that her oldest child went off to college and her youngest could cross the street by himself, she used  the free time to resume piano lessons and to revisit some of the poetry she had encountered as a student and as a High School teacher. She is grateful to Howard Cass for suggesting that she give art songs a try, and to Louis Rosen for unraveling a few of the mysteries of music theory. Her songs have been performed at All Souls Unitarian Church, the Fabbri Mansion on East 95th Street, the Library and Environmental Center in Cold Spring Harbor, NY, and as part of Music in Chelsea's "American Song and Music" program.
