1A native of Baltimore, Brown was rejected in her attempt to enroll at the Peabody Institute, a leading conservatory in her hometown. In 1998, she received the George Peabody Medal for Outstanding Contributions to American Music from the Peabody Institute.
2Brown starred in the original production of the folk opera "Porgy and Bess". Gershwin was so impressed with her performance that he changed the original name of the production from "Porgy" to "Porgy and Bess" so Brown would receive equal billing with baritone Todd Duncan. Gershwin even added a reprise of "Summertime" to the opera for Bess to sing (the song is first sung by Clara, wife of the fisherman Jake).
3Educated at Julliard School of Music in New York. This was also where she heard that George Gershwin was writing an opera on "Porgy". Ten days later she sang for Gershwin and since that she has performed the role more than 600 times around the world.
4Had to cut her career as a singer short for health reasons, but she did work for several years as a song teacher. Among her students are actress Liv Ullmann. She has also staged several operas in France and Norway.
5In the autumn of 2001 she was awarded Norway's Council of Cultures Honorary Award.
6In 1999 she was elected as honorary citizen of Baltimore, the town where she 70 years earlier was refused a music education because of her color.
7Has said she felt her singing was better received in Europe, also because she mainly sang works by European composers, such as Brahms, Schubert, Schuman and Mahler.
8Has lived in Oslo, Norway since 1948, after meeting and eventually marrying Norwegian olympic ski-jumper Thorleif Schjelderup.

1If I had been born even 20 years later, I might have sung at the Metropolitan Opera. I might have marched for civil rights. I would have been here for life would have been very different. Of course, I would not have met Mr. Gershwin, and that would have been a shame.
