Spotlight on Catherine Feig
As a lifelong Cincinnatian, Catherine Lepley-Feig began attending Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra concerts when she was in the ninth grade. Her seats in the gallery at that time cost $.90, plus $.10 to take the streetcar to 6th and Main. While she knew and loved all the pop songs in her youth, she and her sisters always had a love for classical music. Her mother played the piano, and they would spend Sunday afternoons listening to music. “I could kick myself around the block for not learning to play the piano, though,” she said. She recalls her first opera experience was Tannhäuser at the Cincinnati Zoo.
