Judy Anderson began college as a music performance major; favorite class: Opera Theater. Within ten years after graduation, however, she was channeling her penchant for performing into briefing Congressional leaders, senior military officers, and flight crews as a Navy Intelligence Officer. Musical efforts had been relegated to volunteer activities such as directing church choirs.
It was with great delight that after her retirement from active duty with the U.S. Navy, she began volunteer work for HPR and returned to her classical music passions. Delving into the stories behind the music pieces featured on Evening Concert is an educational joy.
Judy is passionate about a variety of musical styles — she dances and teaches hula, and has trained in dance styles as varied as ballet, jazz, and a folk version of flamenco — but classical music remains at the core.
