Herman and Miriam Katims
lived for many years in Rowayton.
Their collections contain copies
of Library of Congress copyrights
“Caprice and Fugue,” “No Longer,”
“Knickerbocker on Parade.” These
compositions — most without any
provenance — found in loose pages,
in spiral notebooks. Herman performed
once at Carnegie Hall. Miriam taught piano.
The Katims had their own music publishing
business — called The Lyric Music Company
— operated out of their home in Rowayton.
Their musical legacies live on — ghost notes heard
at night — riding the longest waves on the Sound.
