DUNN, born in Memphis, Tennessee in 1931, is an American mezzo-soprano. She has performed over 600 times at the New York Metropolitan Opera between 1958 and 1994, beginning with a role as the nurse in Modest Muusorgsky's Boris Godunov. She is now a voice teacher at the Manhattan School of Music as of this biography. WAGNER (1914-1992) was an American choral musician. His father was organist at a cathedral in Dijon, France and, after Wagner's family emigrated to the United States in 1921, he became an organist as well at the age of 12, at St. Ambrose Church in West Hollywood, California. He returned to France to continue his studies; while there, he served in the French army and qualified for the French 1936 decathlon team. After returning to the United States, Wagner was made music director at St. Joseph's Church in Los Angeles and established his first choir, of men and boys. He became supervisor of young choruses for Los Angeles in 1945. The most well-known of his choirs was the Los Angeles Concert Youth Chorus, which became known as the Roger Wagner Chorale, a Grammy Award-winning madrigal group, in 1946. He formed the Los Angeles Master Chorale on completion of the Los Angeles Music Center, which has since become the Los Angeles Philharmonic's resident choir and which toured the Soviet Union as a cultural ambassador. Wagner served as the Master Chorale's music director until 1987. Craig (1919-1997) was a British tenor. He made his operatic debut at the New York Metropolitan Opera in 1959 as a gypsy in Verdi's Il Trovatore. Lightly toned, stained and creased. Water stain near bottom edge of front cover.
