Passing Of Jessye Norman
The Passing of Opera Star Jessye Norman
“Renowned opera star Jessye Norman passed away yesterday at the age of 74. We are very proud that she resided in the Town of Cortlandt for decades in a lovely home in our community. She loved the natural setting and beauty of her property.
Jessye Norman was considered a Regal American Soprano. She sang at the Metropolitan Opera and around the world. She received the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor in 1997 and the National Medal of Arts in 2009. It is with sadness that we learned of Jessye Norman’s passing and extend our sympathies to her family, friends and colleagues in the opera world.”
