About our Editors

Oneonta residents Richard and Harriett Johnson have edited the Guild newsletter since 1995. That year they also had an introduction in-depth to Glimmerglass Opera when they appeared as supernumeraries in Britten’s Paul Bunyan, appropriately cast as old trees. They remain active in Festival activities -- Richard as usher and Harriett at opening performance receptions. In 1998 the company named them Volunteers of the Year, and in 2000 Opera Volunteers International presented them the Partners in Excellence award.
