The Raleigh Civic Music Asso
ciation presented Lauritz Melchior
in the Memorial Auditorium Fri
day, January 26.
At a press conference before the
concert Mr. Melchior gave a brief
summary of his life in opera and of
the program he would present that
Mr. Melchior came to America
in 1926 when the Metropolitan
Opera Company engaged him to
play the old father in_ Traviata.
Since then he has sung in the Met
515 tunes. In his spare time he
sings between 95 and lOo conceits^a
year. Now, between concerts, radio
programs, and benefits, he has no
time to rehearse. However, he told
the reporters that if he hadn’t learn
ed to sing by now he never would.
Next to singing, Mr. Melchior’s
favorite pastime is big-game hunt
ing. He has already been on sev
eral safaris in xVfrica, and his vic
tims include an elephant from whose
hair he had a bracelet made and a
leapard whose skin his wife now
wears as a coat.
When asked whether he would
ever teach, Mr. Melchior replied,
“Only in a school for young opera
singers.” He stated that he would
spend his time only with those who
had made the grade. For those in
terested in operatic careers,
- Melchior advised studying in Eur
ope. He contends that there is no
place for singers trained in America,
but there is always a place for a
foreign artist. ., ^
After a concert for President
Truman and one for the boys leav
ing for Korea, Mr. Melchior plans
to return to Denmark to attend the
fortieth reunion of his King’s Life
Guard. The next thing on his sched
ule is a tiger hunt in India.
For his program Mr. Melchior
chose folk songs from Norway, Swe
den, and Denmark and excerpts
from Tristan und Isolde, Die WaT
kuere and Die Meistersinger. To
conclude his program he sang many
well-known semi-classical pieces.
Mr. Melchior was accompanied by
Director Ainslie Pryor Stars
