MR. EARL ROSENBERG
Voice Department is under the immediate
supervision of the director, Mr. Earl
Rosenberg, who occupies a position of eminence
as a singer, teacher and conductor.
After graduating from
a prominent conservatory of music and spending
several years in private teaching, Mr.
Rosenberg went abroad for two years' study
with George Fergusson in Berlin. During
this time he continued his piano study with
Professor James Kwast of the Sterns
Conservatory, and composition and conducting
with the composer, Hugo Kaun. Mr.
Rosenberg's general musicianship and his
superior qualities as an accompanist earned him
the position of studio accompanist for
Mr. Fergusson. Through this work he has
obtained an unusual insight into Mr.
Fergusson's methods of dealing with all
classes of voices from the beginner to the
Returning to America,
Mr. Rosenberg spent five years at Bethany
College, Lindsborg, Kansas, as principal
teacher of singing, and as conductor of the
famous Messiah Festivals at that place.
A host of successful singers and teachers from
his studio attests the excellence of his
teaching methods, and the press of the
country has been unanimous in conceding Mr.
Rosenberg to be one of the finest choral
conductors in America.
The season of
1913-'14 Mr. Rosenberg was again in Berlin, where he enjoyed considerable success as a
teacher and singer. He continued with
his work with George Fergusson and coached
programs with the composer, Hugo Kaun, and
with Dr. Ernst Yokl, the late Gustav Mahler's
assistant at the Metropolitan, New York.
Coming to Kansas City
in July, 1914, he immediately assumed a place
of distinction among the vocalists of the
city, and within a month of the opening of the
Horner Institute of Fine Arts his teaching
schedule was entirely filled. A waiting
list is maintained for him, and persons
desiring to enter his classes should make
application as long as possible in advance and
they will then be assigned the first open time
