Since playing Yum-Yum in my high school 'Mikado', singing has always been a joy of my life. I toured Europe with the Smith-Princeton Chamber Singers while in college and, while at Penn (twenty-five years as an English professor, fifteen as a dean of advising), I sang in St. David's church choir in Radnor, Pennsylvania, until I became a Quaker and formal singing disappeared from my life. Hurrah, then, for the Chatham Chorale, which I joined in 2012 when I retired to the Cape, my childhood territory. I am married to a man who works non-stop and have two grown sons and two wee grandsons.
