Scranton's Musical Stars - Paul Plishka

Paul Plishka was a leading basso with the Metropolitan Opera since 1967. An Old Forge native, he donated his talents to a benefit concert for the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic on January 26, 1985. When he stepped on stage, he received a tumultuous welcome from many who probably knew him before he even began to sing professionally, or perhaps even sang at all. He responded momentarily, then immediately immersed himself in singing three scenes from Boris Godunov.
