Who's In This Mystery Photo?

The year was 1990; the event was the convocation picnic, which was held on the grand promenade of Avery Fisher Hall due to construction. Can anyone identify these three happy participants? Please e-mail us at or call us at (212) 799-5000, ext. 340.


A number of eagle-eyed alums and staff members identified the two people in the May Missing in Caption—they are Christian Camargo and Claire Lautier(both Group 25). They played Konstantin and Nina in the 1996 production of Chekhov’s The Seagull, directed by Eve Shapiro. Many thanks to the following members of the Juilliard community for contacting us with the ID’s: Ryan Artzberger and Matt Daniels (both Group 25); Hal Cazalet (’96, voice/opera);David Denman (Group 26); drama faculty members Richard Feldman, Eve Shapiro, and Moni Yakim; switchboard operator Margo LambRebecca Hermos (B.F.A. ’93, dance); Drama Council member Diane MorrisonOrlando Pabotoy (Group 27); Bill Powers (1994-95 Drama Division intern and Vocal Arts administrative director); Yvonne Woods Slaten and Eunice Wong (both Group 28); and Beth Rohr Zitzman (1994-95 stage management intern). 

Just after we went to press last issue, a few more people wrote in about the April Missing in Caption photo, among them Don Krishnaswami (B.M. ’84,composition; M.M. ’88, viola) and Thomas Novak (’92, bassoon). And Janet Houston van Graas (D.M.A. ’94, flute), who now plays piccolo with the Dayton (Ohio) Philharmonic, confirmed that she is the piccolo player in the photo. Thanks to all!
