Celebrating Marta Eggerth

Email a Friend

This Saturday, April 17, Hungarian-born singer Marta Eggerth will celebrate her 98th birthday. Knowing Marta, as I’m fortunate to, she will surely have a lively celebration with humor and music.

Marta Eggerth made a wonderful impression when she sang for us in The Greene Space last year. You can watch a song from that performance, Rudolf Sieczynski’s “Wein, Wein, nur du allein,” here.

When I spoke with Marta on the air during that event she said that she continues to feel young and alert because she’s “interested in everything!”  She said “Until the end of my life I want to learn…I am still a student; I enjoy it very much.”

What have you learned lately? A skill? A bit of information? A fact? An insight? Where do you go to learn; somewhere you can recommend to the rest of us?
