Marjorie Jolidon

Marjorie Jolidon served as Musical Club President from 1995 to 1997.

She received music degrees from NYU, then taught high-school students for eight years in Suffield, CT and thirty years in Bloomfield, CT, while also serving as organist at numerous Baptist churches in the area.

In the 1950s, Marjorie and her husband bought a seaside cottage in Old Saybrook, CT. It was there that she spent her final years after her husband died. Having no remaining family members, Marjorie chose to give back to the musical arts in Connecticut. She divided her residual estate among the Hartford Symphony, Goodspeed Opera House, the Musical Club of Hartford, the Katherine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, and the Hartford Guild of Organists. The Musical Club has designated her gift to enable guest artist concerts presented by the Club in what is now entitled the "Jolidon Concert Series".
