Music that impacted me the most!

Year: 1954
Age: 14
Location: Bayreuth, Germany
While visiting Europe for 6 months with my mother, Dr. Pearl Marie Sampson.

Grand operas by Wagner:
Tristan & Isolde

I watched all three operas over a 5-day period and was speechless for 3 days afterward. I instantly fell in love with grand opera and studied and performed over the next 4 years.

  1. Possible misquote on the “war zone”
    piece – I think that it was “mining, petroleum office’s beverage spot” Tim had the error on the “R.I.P. DGN“ shirt and it stuck. – wish we had the front of the napkin as it rounded out the quote perfectly as I remember.
    Anyway nice site – thank you for making it available
