Biographical Note
Mary Wolfman Epstein

Poster from the collection, undated.

Mary Wolfman Epstein was born on August 18, 1908 in Boston, Massachusetts to Morris and Sarah (Lesberg), both immigrants from Russia. As a child, MWE lived in Mattapan (Boston), Massachusetts, graduating from Dorchester High School in 1926. At the age of six, a teacher discovered her vocal talents. Epstein studied music at the Carl Lamson School of Music, and later, as a non-degree seeking student at the Boston University School of Music. She made her professional singing debut at Jordan Hall in 1932.

MWE began her career as an entertainer, musical director, and mistress of ceremonies at summer resorts in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. She worked at numerous resorts, including the Sinclair Hotel, Gray’s Inn, and Wentworth Hall. During the rest of the year, she worked as a secretary to talent manager Aaron Richmond, who was MWE’s own manager.

MWE also worked with various Jewish organizations in the Boston and Brookline areas, including Congregation Kehillath Israel (KI), Brookline-Brighton-Newton Jewish Community Center (BBN JCC), and local chapters of Hadassah. For these organizations, she performed vocal shows, wrote and directed musicals, and led glee clubs and choruses. MWE served as the director of the KI Brotherhood’s Glee Club from 1952 to 1967 and also worked with the KI Sisterhood to write and direct musicals, which often centered on Jewish people or events. These plays include The Golden Door (1955) and Emma Lazarus, the New Colossus (1953). MWE worked frequently with the Boston and Mattapan chapters of Hadassah, writing and directing musicals for them, including Golda Meir, Woman of the Century (1980) and Happy is the Flame (1956). From 1967 to 1980, MWE directed the BBN JCC’s chorus.

MWE was also actively involved in many non-Jewish musical organizations, particularly the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS). After becoming a member in 1952, she held many positions in this organization, including vice president of the national organization, president and treasurer of the Boston chapter, and regional governor for New England. In 1992 she received an award from NATS in recognition of her forty years of dedication to the organization.

In 1958, MWE helped found the New England Jewish Music Forum (NEJMF), a non-profit organization dedicated to organizing and presenting performances of Jewish music in the Boston area. She served as president of the organization from 1966 to 1974 and served as a program advisor after that. Due to low membership and financial difficulties, NEJMF disbanded in 1990.

In 1977, having learned talent management skills during her employment with Aaron Richmond, MWE formed her own management company, Mary Wolfman Epstein Management. She worked with numerous clients inside and outside of the Boston area, many of whom performed songs in Hebrew or Yiddish.

MWE was also a vocal coach, working with professional and amateur clients alike. Epstein was interested in musical teaching theory, collecting numerous articles and attending various workshops and conferences on the subject. Throughout her lifetime, she amassed a vast reference library of articles, sheet music, and musical recordings on Jewish history and music.

MWE’s decades of service to the Boston Jewish community was recognized with various awards. In 1987, she was inducted into The Jewish Advocate’s “Class of Eighty-Five,” and in 1994, she received an honorary doctoral degree from Hebrew College.

On August 18, 1946, MWE married Benjamin Epstein (August 18, 1906- June 2, 1996). The couple settled in Brookline, where they lived their entire lives. They had no children. MWE passed away on March 18, 1998 at the age of 90.
