Dominique-René de Lerma: Two Juilliard Classmates of Leontyne Price said 'the one they most admired was Leonora Lafayette'

[Leonora Lafayette (1926-1975)]

Dominique-René de Lerma has commented today:

I asked two former classmates at Juilliard of Leontyne Price what it was like -- Calvin Lampley and Elaine Kelly.  They independently said Miss Price would walk past the lounge, her music held tightly in her arms, and nod to her friends without slowing her pace to the practice rooms.  They both regarded Price as an extraordinary talent but the one they most admired was Leonora Lafayette.
