osephine Antoine of Boulder earned the enthusiastic admiration of her fellow Boulderites when she rose to fame as a Metropolitan Opera star. After going to school and college in Boulder, she earned a master's degree at the Julliard School of Music in New York. During the illustrious career that followed, Antoine sang the lead in 14 productions with the Metropolitan Opera. Before her first national appearance, she received a telegram from the mayor of Boulder that read, "Every citizen sends you love and good wishes for your performance tomorrow." She also sang on various national radio shows and returned to Boulder to perform at Chautauqua Auditorium and at Macky Auditorium at the University of Colorado. Antoine eventually married and taught music at the University of Rochester's Eastman School of Music.
