Family Reunion

Posted on 04/07/15 by in TMS Musings

By MaryAnn Dowdell

On April 7th, 2015 The Music Settlement reunited Judith Kalanta with a precious photograph of her family’s history.

The picture, estimated to be taken in the mid-1920s, included Ms. Kalanta’s mother, Catherine Richard and Catherine’s two sisters, Elizabeth and Mary. The three ladies were posed elegantly with Elizabeth holding her violin and Mary holding her cello. Catherine Richard was a pianist, which is a marvel because Ms. Kalanta admitted to not knowing about her mother having played the piano. Ms. Kalanta also explained that her Aunt Elizabeth had performed with George Szell, the famous conductor, composer, and director at The Cleveland Orchestra.

Judith Kalanta herself is very familiar with The Music Settlement; her daughter took Eurythmics classes here as a child. In fact, this reunion would not have taken place if it wasn’t for the photo being displayed at The Music Settlement’s 50th anniversary in 1962, where it was first spotted by Ms.Kalanta. It was a joy to find the rightful home of the photo of The Music Settlement’s alumnae.
