In Tribute Kellogg’s passion for opera

In Tribute

Kellogg’s passion for opera,
arts brought success to
Glimmerglass, Cooperstown, region

Paul Kellogg’s love of opera transformed Otsego County’s summer tourism season by making Springfield Center a destination for world-class performances, as the Glimmerglass Opera and now as The Glimmerglass Festival.

Editor’s Note: Glimmerglass Opera Artistic Director Emeritus Paul Kellogg died April 28, 2021, at age 84. As a tribute, his friend, our editorial board member, Lin Vincent wrote about what he meant to arts in the region, and to what is now known as The Glimmerglass Festival in Springfield Center

By Lin Vincent

Soon after Paul Kellogg and his partner, Raymond Han, moved into a potentially elegant 19th-century stone house in Pierstown, with sweeping views across the upstate hills to Cherry Valley and on beyond to the Adirondacks, and a Christmas tree farm to boot, we met.

They had discovered Cooperstown earlier, having visited their friends Sam and Hilda Wilcox, whom Paul had met in Austin, Texas, in the 1950s, Now, in 1975, they had decided upon a quieter life, away from New York City, in which to hone their skills with paint, pen and peonies. We were immediate fast friends.
