A Tribute to Perry Lorenzo

Perry Lorenzo was Seattle Opera's Director of Education for almost 20 years. He passed away on December 19 after fighting lung cancer valiantly for seven months.

In his letter to the community, Speight Jenkins said, "...when we did something well, [Perry's] ability to grasp the essence of why it was good always amazed and moved me."
Perry Lorenzo's affection for our art form moved countless people throughout his life. Please feel free to share any memories you have of Perry in the comments of this blog post.
