Patrick D. McCoy: The passing of Carmen Balthrop (1948-2021)

Dear Mr. Zick,

It is with great sadness that I share the passing of soprano Carmen Balthrop.  This is the statement from the University of MD, College Park School of Music:  (Graphic with photo attached)

"The University of Maryland and the School of Music mourn the loss of our beloved voice and opera professor, Carmen Balthrop, who passed away September 5 following a year-long battle with cancer. Although Carmen’s illustrious career path led her to many of the great opera houses and concert stages throughout the world, it was her love, devotion and passion for teaching that always took center stage. Those who worked with her, studied with her or were simply graced by her presence know the huge void that has befallen our community. A full In Memoriam article to follow."
