Clarksville, TNDr. Sharon Mabry’s plane was delayed. The Austin Peay State University professor of music arrived at the Copley Plaza Hotel in Boston a little after 11:30 p.m., some six hours later than she intended. She was tired, having spent the day rushing through airports to make connecting flights, and she needed a good night sleep. The next morning, she was scheduled to sing live before a national audience on WGBH radio.

She and her accompanist, Patsy Wade, were close to panicking. They explained to the clerk that they were supposed to perform a concert in only a few hours. «Read the rest of this article»
