Marian Anderson

Contralto

Rich and VIbrant Voice. Client since 2009.

Born February 27, 1897 in Philadelphia, Marian Anderson displayed vocal talent as a child, but her family could not afford to pay for formal training. Members of her church congregation raised funds for her to attend a music school for a year, and in 1955, she became the first African American singer to perform as a member of the Metropolitan Opera in New York City.
