About the Artists
Franz Alters was born in the old Spa of Karlsbad, then Austria, now Czechoslovakia. Though he has made America his home for many years, his special affinity for the music of his homeland has provided audiences everywhere with memorable evenings of Viennese splendor. Mr. Allers has conducted "Music from Vienna" programs with many of America's finest orchestras including those of Philadelphia, Chicago, Cleveland, and San Francisco, and his work in the American musical theater has won him the coveted Tony Award as Music Director and Conductor of two of Broadway's biggest hits--"My Fair Lady" and "Camelot." He subsequently took "My Fair Lady" to Vienna, with the Tonkuenstler Orchestra in the pit, only one of Mr. Allers' many associations with this popular European orchestra during its 33-year history.
Elizabeth Hynes has sung several roles with the New York City Opera and made appearances with the opera companies of Fort Worth, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Washington, D.C., and at the Colorado Opera Festival. She has also drawn national acclaim for her recital tours and performances with the Pittsburgh Symphony, National Symphony of Washington, D.C., and the Ambler Festival.
