Marilyn Horne Puts Her ProtÈgÈs on Parade in Song

By ANNE MIDGETTE [NY Times, 29 January 2007]
The standing ovation came before a note of music had been sung. The Marilyn Horne Foundationís annual gala recital is supposed to focus on song, but it also focuses on Marilyn Horne. Looking radiant in gold lace, apparently undaunted by a yearís struggle with cancer, she played host to Friday eveningís event at Zankel Hall, a night after giving a master class there, with every bit of her star flair. And at her first entrance the audience stood, with applause and shouts of ìBrava,î to greet her.
