Peggy Herman was born in Philadelphia and was raised in Miami Beach, Florida. A classically trained musician, she was the recipient of two scholarships in vocal study at Temple University in Philadelphia, where she performed with their opera company. During her four-season affiliation with the Greater Miami Opera Guild, she performed with Joan Sutherland and Luciano Pavoratti. She volunteered her services to Mr. Pavoratti as his personal driver in order to get a more in-depth look at his operatic world. Longing for closer contact with the audience, Peggy Herman joined the Middle of the Road Singers as the lead vocalist and traveled around the world, then found a home performing on five-star cruise ships on the Cunard and Royal Viking lines. Her cruise ship performances led to her own cabaret act, opening for Phyllis Diller at Miami Beach's famous Fountainbleu Hotel. After meeting her husband, Dr. Alan Klat, in New York, she decided to make her home in the area. She has performed at various Catskill resorts, including The Concord, Kutscher's and Raleigh, and has opened for many headline performers, including Bob Hope, Alan King and Milton Berle. After meeting composer/accompanist Alex Rybeck, she began performing regularly at the popular Manhattan nightspot Eighty-Eight's and participated in the Mabel Mercer Cabaret Conventions at Town Hall. Peggy Herman has been featured in many theatrical productions, including the roles of Mother Superior in 'Nunsense' and Bloody Mary in 'South Pacific.' When not performing, Peggy is the Art Dealer for 9 time Tony Award winner Tommy Tune and Peter Glebo.
