She spent a year studying abroad in Rome, Italy where she rode the bus an hour each way to take voice lessons 2 or 3 times a week. Falling in love with music at the feet of her grandmother’s piano, at an age she can’t even remember, Greta knew that she would be a performer. Watching an episode of the Bugs Bunny Show (“What’s Opera, Doc?) with her father, a touring production of Bizet's Carmen that her mother insisted she attend and a late night viewing of “Singing in the Rain” on AMC, and there was no turning back.
