Personal Quote:

I sing opera, but I am musician. I teach too many crummy kids who think they've got to be opera singers. Opera is such a teeny tiny part in the world of music. I don't want to be called an opera singer.


She taught at Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York; Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York; and the Peabody Conservatory of Music. See more »
