Jun 20, 2020

Anne Midgette was the chief classical music critic of The Washington Post for 11 years, until last November; before that, she was for seven years a regular contributor to The New York Times. Her writings on opera, music, theater, film and dance have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, Opera News, Town & Country, and many other publications. A graduate of Yale University, she began her journalism career during the 11 years she lived in Munich, Germany, where she edited a monthly English-language magazine, traveled around Europe contributing articles to various publications, translated everything from technical manuals to film screenplays, and wrote several travel guidebooks. She has co-authored books on the tenor Luciano Pavarotti ("The King and I") and the pianist Leon Fleisher ("My Nine Lives"). She is currently working on a historical novel about the woman who built pianos for Beethoven.

  • What has been one of your most memorable Challenges?
    • Beginning running or other exercise programs can lead to other exciting life changes, such as taking leaps you hadn’t considered tangible before.
