Roberta Peters Fields, Parent '79, world-famous opera singer and an Ithaca College honorary trustee, died on Wednesday, January 18, 2017. She was 86 years old.

Known professionally as Roberta Peters, she worked in multiple mediums: opera, concert, television, musical comedy and as a recording artist. During her long career she was especially noted for coloratura roles — those requiring high, light agile singing in virtuosic arias. She developed an early love for singing, and at the age of 19, she made her star debut at the Metropolitan Opera, which opened the door to a lengthy and successful career.

Second, I try to understand why they are done this way. Some seem to have very good reasons, and some don’t seem to have very good reasons, other than the fact that they have been done this way all along. I’m still in the first two stages, and maybe after this first year I will move to the third stage, which is, how can I improve the process?
