MARLENA STUDER: Breaking into the business of wine and song

Over the years, I have sung in a number of venues – but it wasn't until I spent ten years in New Orleans that a passion for jazz got into my blood.  While doing my "day gig" as Sociology Professor at Tulane University, I was invited to sing with the big band, Jubilation! and I was hooked.  My appetite for performing jazz standards has grown exponentially since then. I have had opportunities to sing with several bands since then, in Washington DC and Ann Arbor.
