I left the group in 1963 after all of the above records were produced and started to concentrate on Opera and Acting.  I married and did some singing on the side with THE JOHNNY MANN SINGERS and as a band member with Jimmy Wakely.  When my family came along, I left music and entered the film production business.  As soon as I made the decision to leave music, I received a letter from the Los Angeles Opera Association asking me to become a member of their group as a singer.
