Gloria’s Gift – Talent Tuesday

Gifted Gloria

Miss Gloria, daughter of Mrs. Sylvia and late Dr. Howard, was born February 11, 1955. Gloria has a younger brother affectionately called “Bernie”.  Gloria has attended Stewart Home & School since April 2007.  Gloria is diagnosed with Williams syndrome. Gloria participates in all activities to celebrate her Jewish Faith.  She is often called upon to lead in singing when attending Synagogue or Temple.

Gloria is a renowned singer and musician and can sing in 28 languages. She has studied with the best of the best to excel in her craft of singing. Gloria has traveled extensively over the years all over the world performing in opera’s and playing her accordion. She does a lot of benefit concerts as a soloist. To give an example of her depth of talent, Gloria was asked to commit to memory Samuel Barber’s Oratorio, Knoxville, Summer of 1915. This is a piece of music that is considered complex and challenging in the modern repertoire. Gloria learned this piece in a very short time only having to re-learn in a matter of weeks before performing it due to the different tempo of the orchestra director. Gloria has been on many national T.V. shows including Sally Jessy Raphael.

 Gloria continues to be a talented, caring and an integral part of Stewart Home & School, still continuing her private voice lessons with our former music teacher and accordion lessons with Tony Lovello who in his own right is a accomplished performer.

 We are privileged to have Gloria as a student and part of our Stewart Home & School Jewish Community.
