Fireside Chat: William Sano
Sunday, January 26, 2020
Here’s a tribute to the multi-talented Judy Garland — mother of three, wife of five — whom you never knew. She began her career at age 2 1/2 in vaudeville. Never wanted to sing “Over the Rainbow” as an adult. Married five times. Recorded over 1,000 songs in her lifetime. Starred in countless movies for MGM and other studios. Died in London at age 47 and one week of a possible overdose of barbiturates.
William Sano is a retired music educator from the Marblehead Public Schools. A resident of Salem for 33 years, Sano is also a choral director, pianist, organist, tuba player, and frequent lecturer. A lifelong enthusiast for the music of Judy Garland, he only regrets that he never met her in person.
