A wonderful story about a wonderful person …

… The Woman Who Abandoned a Successful Recording Career to Play Music for the Dying. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

This life story would be impressive under any circumstances, but especially so when you consider that Therese Schroeder-Sheker had a brilliantly successful career as a recording artist and concert hall performer. She could have spent her entire life as a music star, but instead put her primary focus on serving those in the most dire and hopeless situations.

Oddly, the only famous musicians I’ve got to know were mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves and tenor Luciano Pavarotti, both of whom turned out to be just nice people. Of course, Temple Painter, who was a world-famous harpsichordist, wax simply a dear friend.
