Title A Lady of Note
Description came right home to Mt Pleasant and she walked through her father's farm, through the fields Every day she would walk back and forth and back and forth Her hair turned completely white over a very short time, and she was so grief stricken that she didn't like to talk about it to anyone. She hoped for a long time for some word regarding her husband, word she did not receive. He was never found. Everyone sympathized with her and she received many letters and notes and phone calls from friends, but she was never quite the same again. She established herself in Salt Lake giving private piano lessons and also teaching piano at the McCune School of Music One of her pupils was a young man from Salt Lake City named Grant Johannesen. They worked together for many years, and Mr Johannesen gives Mabel credit for giving him his early training He later went on to study piano with Robert Casadesus at Princeton University and Egon Petri at Cornell University, and theory with Roger Sessions and Nadia Boulanger He made his debut at Times Hall, New York, on 17 April 1944. In 1949 he won first prize at the Concours International at Ostend and also undertook his first international tour Since that time he has traveled extensively and won many awards He performed most recently in Salt Lake City during the 1994-95 Utah Symphony season Mabel's life made a difference Her influence is not only felt by her many students from Sanpete County, but throughout the world through the superb performances of one who must be recognized as her star student.
