Classical Tahoe

Carol Franc Buck (December 28, 1936 – April 9, 2022)

One of Carol Franc Buck’s favorite sayings was, “when I go to the brighter shore…

Our beloved friend and founding donor made her way peacefully to the brighter shore early Saturday morning. There was a magnificent sunrise at the time of her passing that filled the cove in Crystal Bay with gorgeous light.

Carol has been Classical Tahoe’s sponsor, mentor, and champion. She graciously opened her beach for our orchestra and their families to enjoy every summer. Her brilliant mind, kind heart, and stunning blue eyes kept Joel, me, the orchestra, and the entire organization inspired to exceed her expectations. When Joel would ask her how the concert was, she would answer, “it was adequate.” He understood that was very high praise.

Brava to our friend, hero, and supporter in celebration of a life well-lived.

We thank her for her generosity and dedication to sharing art, culture, and beauty with so many. We will look for her continued love and light from the brighter shore.
