Just found out about Michelle’s passing earlier today while looking through the Oberlin Alumni Association web site. Michelle and I attended Oberlin Conservatory about the same time. She was Class of 1980, while I was Class of 1982. At one point, we waited tables together at Oberlin’s Asia House dining hall. Although I didn’t know her very well, I did know she was a really good cellist. She was so good, she won the Conservatory’s concerto competition (Strings Dept) her senior year and performed Elgar’s Cello Concerto with the Oberlin Orchestra Dec 14th 1979. I kept my program from that concert and am uploading the scan to share with you. Andrew Seid Oberlin Conservatory Class of 1982
