Long-time Bloomington resident Jane Hazelrigg died peacefully in her sleep at Amsterdam House in New York City on Monday night, December 22nd.

Born June 22, 1914, she was the first of seven children born to Danish immigrants Niels and Birte Andersen in Buffalo, NY.

As a young adult, she studied violin with Raphael Bronstein in New York City and graduated from Oberlin College in 1939 with a major in music.

She moved to Evansville in the Fall of 1939 where she was concertmaster of the Evansville Philharmonic and taught violin at Cluthe School of Music and Evansville College Music Department.

She married Hugh C. Hazelrigg on August 24, 1940, in Evansville.

In 1950 she moved to Bloomington where she and her husband were avid chamber music players. She was an active participant in Friday Musicale.

She taught music and conducted the orchestra at University School from 1959 to 1964.

In 1962 she earned a master's degree in violin performance from IU under the tutelage of Josef Gingold.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Hugh C. Hazelrigg, science editor with the IU News Bureau for 25 years and a well-known Bloomington chamber music enthusiast, in 1980.

In 2000 she moved to New York City to be closer to family.

She is survived by two siblings, Betty Pound of Boston, MA, and Anders Andersen of Eggertsville, NY, and by her children, Amy C. Hazelrigg of Farmington, NM, Hugh A. Hazelrigg of Bloomington, and Tulle I. Hazelrigg of New York City, and three grandchildren, Niall Hazelrigg of Vancouver, BC, Max Hazelrigg of Arvada, CO, and Sarah Chalfie of New York City.
