The American mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne is world-renowned as both a singer and educator. She has performed at leading opera houses throughout the world, including extensively at the Metropolitan Opera in New York as well as at La Scala and Covent Garden.
What is not generally known is the fact that she has been a collector of music- and opera-related documents and memorabilia (including autograph letters, prints, photographs, programs, etc. spanning the 18th through 20th centuries) over the course of her long career.
