A Passion for Music, Lorraine Harding '75

I loved my teachers at Ursuline - they made the school classroom lively and fun.

I came to Ursuline as a freshman in 1971. In my sophomore year, I took a few of Margaret (Peggy) Railey's classes: Music Theory, private piano lessons, and Concert Choir. My passion was music and she taught me so much. If I could go back in time, I would love to see her again. Her lovely smile and the compassion she had for her students was overwhelming. 

Peggy passed away some years back and I know in my heart that she is in Heaven with all the Angels singing praises and playing her piano. She had a wonderful voice and personality and was one of Ursuline's finest teachers. She took me under her wings and gave me so much.
