Residing In New York,
Occupation retired

Immediately after graduating, I left on a Fulbright to study music in Salzburg, Austria. I spent four wonderful years and graduated from the Mozarteum with diplomas in voice, opera and Lieder interpretation. While in school, I sang in the Wiener Kammeroper and gave recitals. I returned to the US and dove into the NY music scene keeping very busy doing small opera productions, church work and recitals. I was always ambivalent about a music career. I worked briefly for the admin office of the HIV/AIDS center at St. Vicent's Hospital, and eventually decided for international business. I was transferred to Europe in 1979 to work for AIG in London and Vienna and for the Zurich Insurance in Zurich. After 3 1/2 years I returned to Manhattan which has been my home ever since. In 1993, I put my music education back to work and became a full time singer again. Over the next 13 years I gave scores of song recitals in the US and Germany and retired in 2006. I now have a second home in Essex, Connecticut.

I was recently interviewed by Weill Cornell Hospital. The gist of the story was my very successful kidney transplant 6 1/2 years ago and the need for more donors. They were also interested in my background as a singer and my non-profit work.

School Story

I entered as a Conservatory student and, after 2 1/2 years, transferred into the College graduating with just enough credits in August '68 - just in time to leave for Europe. I did two, very hot summers in Oberlin and lived without A/C - candles melted in the little apartment I rented. But the Con was cool and my German course was great. The second summer I attended the Republican Convention in Miami as part of the government course I was taking - and I thought Oberlin was hot!

Thanks. Paul. This month is also the 10th anniversary of my kidney transplant - something to celebrate.

What a lively, note-worthy (ok, pun intended) series of stories, dear Carol! I, too, spent 2 summers in Oberlin -- you mentioned "hot" but "MUGGY" would not be out of place, either. And yes. Candles melted in MY little spot, too!! Happy Solstice celebrations and glad to hear your kidney transplant went so very well! We'll be spending Dec 25th with a friend who may need that as a next step, so I'll think of this as YOUR gift to HIM!! Warmly, Paula

I was recently elected to the Board of Trustees and the Museum of American Finance. This is a picture of me taken in the museum.
