“From the moment she met you at the door of her home in Newton MA, Elsie Sigal was the perfect host, gracious and considerate in all things, and making up snacks and drinks as you worked through getting historic instruments ready for concerts. Marlowe Sigal was the collector and enthusiast for the instruments, Elise was the enthusiast for all the guests that passed through the home from 1975 to 2019, when she left for California and a few warm last winters.”
