She also was the Founder and Artistic Director of the Opera Company of the Highlands (OCH) and Conductor of the Newburgh Symphonic Chorale. Mount Saint Mary College conferred upon her the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters.

Julie performed in numerous concerts and operas that she directed, including principle roles in her OCH productions of The Marriage of Figaro, Die Fledermaus, Hansel & Gretel and Showboat. This concert is being organized by two of her colleagues from OCH Terri Vargas and Rose Wolvek.

For this Celebration, Julie will join the following principal singers of OCH singing arias and ensembles from operas that Claudia directed; Lori-Brown Mirabel, Jeremy Moore, Vira Slywotzky, Jabob Feldman and Rebecca Gordon, with piano accompanist Ryan Kennedy. There will be a showing of selections from Claudia's superb PBS performance of Lucia Di Lammermoor. Claudia's DVDs will be on sale for $15.

All the proceeds and donations from this concert will be given to the Alzheimers Foundation and "The Mount Scholarship Fund" in Claudia's name. A reception in Fellowship Hall will follow the concert. For more information, contact Terri Vargas, Chairman at teeanjaa@yahoo.com or call 845-565-6366
