Administrative/Biographical History

A native of New Orleans, Marguerite Piazza graduated from Loyola University New Orleans with a bachelor's degree in music in June 1940. She then attended graduate school in music at Louisiana State University.


Following university study, Piazza began her career as a professional singer. Much of her early work, roughly from the mid-1940s to the early 1950s, was as an opera soprano. Her performances included stints with the New York City Opera and with the Metropolitan Opera Company. Afterwards, she performed in television, especially on NBC's Show of Shows, in theatre, nightclubs, and other forms of enterainment.
