In fact, Corigliano revised "Fern Hill" several times, setting it originally for his high school music teacher, Mrs. Bella Tillis, who introduced the work in 1960 with the school choir of which Corigliano had once been a member, accompanied by piano.

My greatest influence is my high school music teacher, Mrs. Bella Tillis, who is still coming to my concerts and for whom I wrote "Fern Hill" which is part of the Dylan Thomas Trilogy.It was the first large scale thing I ever wrote.It was a gift for her and her chorus at Midwood High School in Brooklyn.She was the one who encouraged me to go into music when I was young because my parents did not want me to go into music.She's now at every concert that I do and she looks exactly the same as in the '50s.Some teachers really do change your life and she was certainly one of them.And not just for me, but for a lot of people.

Unattained Ambition:
I love painting.When I was a kid my goal was to be a cartoonist.What I found to be the most inventive and artistic things that I ever saw were Disney's films like Dumbo, which is basically like a musical.It's so extraordinary.
