Most of our recent alumni interviews have been of alumni from more recent vintages, but we wanted to spotlight an alumna with a more experience than most of us.
Beverly Stern (Slitt) Silver got her Music Education degree from Hartt in 1970. She studied piano and voice at Hartt from 1966 to 1970. She is currently living in East Hartford, CT.
After graduating, Beverly general and choral music for 26 1/2 years in Windsor, CT. She has also taught piano and voice privately for more than 20 years. When not teaching, Beverly has performed with a number of community theatre groups, both in musicals and drama/comedy. And, both she and her husband, Marc Silver, have been active in Simsbury Light Opera Company since 1998.
She and Marc are members of Congregation Beth Israel Choir, in West Hartford, for many years and have participated in Sabbath Services and several Temple Music Productions as well. They have also sung with the Hartford Choir, Voce, the Farmington Symphony, and, as part of the Temple Choir, in May, 2015, sang with the Hartford Chorale and the Hartford Symphony under the direction of Maestra Caroline Kwan in Bernstein's Chichester Psalms.
Beverly's daughter is very proud of her daughter, an alumna of Hall High School and Yale University, where she earned her M.A. and Ph.D. in Medieval History. After teaching for eight years, Beverly's daughter is now the managing editor of the create-your-own-adventure on-line game company, 'Choice of Games.'
Beverly plans to continue singing and teaching in the Hartford area with Marc.
