1960 Elin Frazier, Trumpet
I came to Philadelphia temporarily, I thought, to attend Curtis Institute. I stayed in Philadelphia and it is a nice place to live. I lead a simple life, freelancing and teaching. I have my own concert series, Music from the Heart, in which I play six or seven different trumpets, and I play opera and ballet and have become a baroque specialist, though not on period instruments. I still practice every day and take private lessons in New York.
Marilyn Bone Kloss, Horn
I am now retired from my last job as a technical writer at a software company. I play second horn and am librarian in the Concord Orchestra, publish a newsletter for horn enthusiasts, and am assistant editor for the Horn Call, the publication of the International Horn Society. I have written a Handbook for Community Orchestra Librarians and established a network of orchestra librarians who share music. I earned BME and MM degrees at Indiana University, taught public school music, free-lanced, earned a BS in mechanical engineering at Northeastern University and worked for Raytheon Company and a software company doing programming, technical support, and documentation before my last job as technical writer.
Donald H. Lovell, Bass Trombone
I am a retired public school music teacher. I still play my trombone and play occasionally with a local swing band. Other than music, I avidly pursue an interest in photography. Playing in the orchestra was a genuinely enlightening experience for me and I will always consider myself lucky to have been a part of it. Also, I have fond memories of and the deepest respect for the conductor, Marvin Rabin. I wish the best for the orchestra.
Jane Morrill, Violin
Bob Newman, Oboe
Would be glad to hear from anyone from those long ago days that seem almost like a dream now. I lived overseas for many years, but am now back in the house where I grew up, in Marblehead.
Patricia Kilroy, Bass
