Remembering Alfred Anderson

Alfred Anderson

Professor Emeritus Alfred Anderson passed away on Friday, June 17, surrounded by his family. Mr. Anderson was a professor of voice and the opera/lyric theatre in the School of Music for 25 years. In addition to being a wonderful baritone and active performer, he was a great influence on many voice students who went on to very successful careers of their own. He will be deeply missed. 

A memorial service is planned in the coming weeks, and we will share information as it becomes available. Please keep his dear wife, Sally Ann, and his children in your thoughts. His son, Sean, quoted this from "Man of LaMancha" the morning of his passing:

"My destiny calls, and I go.
And the wild winds of fortune shall carry me onward,
whithersoever they blow. 
Onward to glory I go!!"
