  • Katherine Davis BS ’67 writes: “In spring of 2017, I performed as a ‘cigarette girl’ in the chorus of Carmen on the Broad Stage at Santa Monica College’s Performing Arts Campus. We sang in French, rehearsing two nights a week. It was fun, but exhausting. I was going to take the summer off, but I miraculously got a teaching job at a private school in Westwood and had six wonderful weeks teaching ESL to several levels of students from every country. I also sang in a small chamber choir and in a ‘Singing for Our Lives’ concert. We celebrated diversity; protested injustice; and sang for love, for the elderly with Alzheimer’s, for the legacy of Dr. King. I have six grandkids, including two girls, who are 21 and 15, from my stepdaughter. The eldest studied film at the University of California at Santa Cruz and has an amazing band called GAL PAL; her sister is studying art at a magnet school. My eldest son, a Georgetown graduate, has a beautiful German wife and four children; they live in Manila, Philippines. After editing a book for an Italian law professor who is writing in English, I’ve decided to study Italian. So, I’m taking Italian–plus creative writing and a vocal performance workshop–at Santa Monica College with the hope of eventually going to Milan and having more work there. I continue to publish some of my poetry on a WordPress blog called Scarlet Letters.”
