Sue Fay Allen and Carl Klingenschmitt wear many hats.
Residents of Akron, the couple was recently nominated by the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra for the “Un-Sung Heros” award in acknowledgment of their philanthropy to the Western New York musical community.
In an award ceremony being held May 25 at the Hotel Lafayette in downtown Buffalo, Allen and Klingenschmitt were to be presented with the award by the Arts Services Initiative of WNY.
Allen and Klingenschmitt are both retired; Allen was the music coordinator for the Amherst schools, and her husband was an engineer.
Since retiring, the two have searched out ways to remain active and involved as a team.
“You begin to see the things you can make a difference in,” Allen said of retirement.
The duo focused their energy on music, Klingenschmitt as a problem solver and Allen as the “Energizer bunny.”
