Newsletter of the Jussi Björling Societies of the USA & UK



Honorary Advisors, Placido Domingo, Neil Shicoff


Our previous Newsletter #5 told of Robert Merrill and Birgit Nilsson joining JBSUSA as Honorary Advisors. Now with similar pride we can add the names of ·Placido Domingo and Neil Shicoff to our list of Honorary Advisors - these two unique tenors share much with Jussi Bjorling , in addition to being great tenors in their own right: Let's just note here that their fathers were all professional singers; that they each were singing semi-professionally by the age of 8; and they'd all debuted in a major tenor role by the age of 19.
