Here are the seniors I followed during the week:
Sixty-one-year-old Noel Miner, who joined the theater track, made an appropriately grand entrance onto the Chautauqua grounds in western New York with her husband and biggest fan Harold on their 2010 Harley Tri-Glide from their home just outside Orlando.
When George Lane, 81 (at right) of Gaithersburg, Md., told Encore Creativity he needed a ride to Chautauqua, Jeanne Kelly put him in touch with Vin Kelly (left) of Chevy Chase. Coincidentally, the two had been neighbors 30 years ago in Silver Springs. They are also both tenors.
