Prayer for Thanksgiving


Donald J. Quinn, Jussiphiles


Life was music and music defined life for my father, Donald J. Quinn. My father developed his love for all things musical as a very young child singing in the St. Mary’s church choir in Greentop, Missouri. After serving in World War II, he studied voice at the University of Missouri- Kansas City Conservatory of Music where he became familiar with opera and the great singers of his time. He also studied Italian, French, and Spanish at Rockhurst College in Kansas City, which furthered his appreciation of his love for opera.
