VICENTE BALILESTER, baritone, was born in
V4lencia, Spain, and until he was eighteen his
artist talents were directed toward painting.
He then began the study of music, supporting
himself with his brush. He sang frequently in
Barcelona and shortly afterwards went to
Paris where lie soon made his debut in Opera.
Since then he has sung with great success in
Italy, South America and with both the Chi-
cago and the Metropolitan Opera Companies.
OSS P GABRILOWITSCH, pianist, made his
professional debut in Berlin. Although' only
eighteen years old at the time, so decided was
his pianistic individuality that he immediately
won both audiences and critics to unreserved
enthusiasm. Following this appearance, he
made extensive tours throughout Europe, and
in 1900 came to this country. Here, as else-
where, he exerted the same quality of power
which has since carried him to the lonely
height of artistic pre-eminence which he now
It was in 1918 that Mr. Gabrilowitsch was
offered the conductorship of the Detroit Sym-
phony Orchestra, in which position he has re-
vealed the same extraordinary qualities which
are such significant factors' in his success as
a piano virtuoso.
IIYS MIORGAN, the young Welsh tenor, has
been described as "Evan Williams of this gen-.
eration." In the short time that he has been
in America he has appeared in practically all
of the music centers of the East and Central
West in oratorio and recital. His engagements
have been veritable triumphs. He is the pos-
sessor of a flaming voice, virile and soaring,
and in spite of his youth is a master of
LAWRENCE TIBBETT, baritone. "Not since
the days of Lilian Nordica has an American
heard such thunders of applause bestowed by


MARIO C1AI+LEE, the distinguished dra-
matic tenor of the Metropolitan Opera Com-
pany, is an American, born and bred. His
excelling gifts as a singer and actor, and the
perfection of his style and diction mark him
as one set apart. There is the freshness and
virility of youth in Chamlee's tones; a. spon-
taneity and power in his wonderful high voice
as unusual as it i: satisfying.

AIdUSTA LENSK A, mezzo-soprano, Chicago
Civic Opera Company, s one of the new acqui-
sitions to this year's forces, and in view of the
favor her vocal and histrionic capacities have
gained with public and critics, her re-engage-
ment for next season by that organization is
eminently justified. Miss Lenska has been a
mnember of European opera companes for sev-
eial years, and conies to America in the prime
of her artistic dlevelopmfent. During this, her
first season, she sang in "Aida" (Amneris),
"Mephistopliele," "La Gioconda," and "Hansel
An d Gretel,' both in Chicago and on tour.


HENRI SCOTT. Few opera . singers have
met with the unqualified success on the concert
stage that has been achieved by Henri Scott.
Before his advent into opera, Mr. Scott won
for himself an enviable reputation as a con-
cert and oratorio singer of the first rank.
MISCHA ELMAN, violinist, is so well known
to the public through his records and many
concert appearances that his career needs no
special announcement. This engagement, how-
ever, is of especial significance since it marks
his first appearance with orchestra in these
EMILY STOKES HAGAR, soprano, made her
debut in "Messiah" with such famous singers
as Herbert Witherspoon and Evan Williams;
after several successful seasons in light opera,
making an unusual success, she turned to
grand opera and sang roles in the "Secret of
Suzanne," "Jewels of the Madonna," etc. Her
concert appearances followed along and lead-
ing societies and orchestras engaged her, in-
eluding the famous Bach Choir in Bethlehem,
where she sang the Bach Masses for three
Miss Hagar is endowed with a rich, mel-
low, limpid, soprano voice. Her qualities are
such that she can sing the lyre parts as well
as the dramatic which are demanded in the
Bach and Handel oratorios.

conspicuous singers of the younger genera-
tion, and possesses a voice of extraordinary
