Here are some of the joyous events in the lives of the members of the Lyric Opera Orchestra!
In August, our Principal Harp Lynn Williams and her husband Donald Claxton welcomed beautiful Lucille into the world. No more playing the harp with a baby bump!
Second Horn Neil Kimmel married mezzo soprano Susan Platts last February. She has just returned from six weeks performing at the Royal Opera House in London.
Collins Trier (bass) and Jennifer More were married August 8, 2017 in a civil ceremony close to their home, with their children as guests and enthusiastic photographers (picture taken in the Desert Room at the Oak Park Conservatory).
Fritz Foss (Assistant Principal/Utility Horn) and Sarah were married on April 23 of this year in Glenview, IL. Sarah is a nurse at Rush Medical Center. They enjoy traveling and went to Sedona (AZ), Marin County, Iceland, and England together.
From Mimi Tachouet (Principal Flute):
"My husband, Jeff, and I were married on August 6 in Sisters, Oregon. We had a beautiful wedding day (the forest fires cooperated just in time!) and we appreciate your well-wishes!"
