Today I was saddened to learn of the passing of my second voice teacher, who supervised my progress from 1969 to 1971, when I was a very tender 18 to 20 years old. Gloria Bugni McMaster Juhn was a gifted soprano who loved to sing. I owe to her many daring adventures into the Lieder of Brahms, Mendelssohn's Elijah, and even Puccini, for when she wanted to put on Act 3 of La Bohème for the local Library, casting herself as Mimi, there was no stopping her, even to the point of enlisting me en urgence as Marcello! And what a magnificent world opened to a young man to learn this exquisite music, with its broad phrases, coached to perfection in Italian to say through my teeth Vipera! Strega! It was especially impressive to hear my teacher sing Mimi's aria Donde lieta Her meltingly tender way of singing Bada remains sharp in my memory. She made frequent stops in New York, where she had trained at Juilliard, and invited me to hear Sutherland and Horne at the Met. Somewhat zany, and true to her Auntie Mame persona (with me as the nephew Patrick), back in those days she once sent me a quickly-handwritten postcard from Rome. Rome in Italy. That small-town boy hadn't yet met many people that had ever been to Rome! When it was time for this young student to transfer with scholarships to New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, and further adventures, I was hardly aware of the rich and supportive background offered to me in those early days at SUNY Geneseo. Mrs. McMaster remained proud of my achievements, and called my Mom regularly to keep up with my news. It appears she would burst into song at the nursing home, and only hoped I could join her sometime for some big duets! I know she was loved and will be missed by her family and former students.

No one had ever called me Master Samuel, But when I met Gloria Juhn, that was the name she gave to me. Every time I heard her speak to me, It thrilled my heart. Only Gloria could say Master Samuel with such class.

It was my honor to have met such a talented and classy lady when she arrived at Villa Grande in Sarasota, FL.

As part of the Starlight Singing Group, Gloria Juhn could still deliver a pitch perfect, beautiful note, that was pleasing to hear.

Gloria, I still have my program that I asked you to sign for me with your beautiful picture. Although you thought you were not a star, You will alway's be my star. I love you and will miss you dearly my friend.

Save a place for me in the heavenly choir. I know you are leading the angels in perfect harmony.

Love You Alway's,

Dr. Samuel Wallace IV
