Carolyn Long, a lyric soprano who sang in concerts, operettas and operas here and abroad during the late 1940s and early 1950s, died Oct. 3 at Mallard Bay Nursing Home in Cambridge of complications after surgery. She was 76 and had moved from Bethesda to Cambridge about five years ago.
Miss Long also taught voice in Washington until she retired about 10 years ago.
Graveside services for Miss Long were being held today at the Dorchester Memorial Park in Cambridge.
The former Carolyn Creighton was a native of Cambridge and a graduate of Cambridge High School and the Peabody Conservatory, where she was awarded scholarships and cited as the best voice student at her graduation.
She sang in operettas and with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra before moving to St. Louis.
After marrying Hugh-Blair Long of Virginia, she sang as Miss Carolyn Long and continued using the name both professionally and privately after her marriage ended in divorce.
