Albert Meisenbach has performed successfully in the fields of opera. lieder and oratorio. Here is a review from La Voce in Perugla, Italy: "The beautiful timbre of his voice, the elegance of his gestures and facial expressions, his ease of pronunciation
in five different languages, created an atmosphere of attention, admiration and uncommon enthusiasm." And from La Voz de Miehoacan (Morella, Mexico): "Another artistic revelation was the appearance of Albert Meisenbach, who with his refined baritone voice sang eloquent romantic songs".
Kiyoshi Tamagawa is Professor of Music and Chairman of the Department of Music at Southwestern University. A past winner of the National Guild of Piano Teachers' International Piano Recording competition, Dr. Tamagawa has performed as soloist and collaborative pianist throughout the US and England. He has collaborated with Violinist Eugene Fodor and with Mr. Fodor released a CD entitled "Witches Brew".

President of the Wagner Society of Dallas
The Wagner Society of Dallas - Virginia R.
Abdo and Dr. James T. Wheeler,
The Wagner Society of Dallas is devoted to furthering the enjoyment
and appreciation of the music of Richard Wagner. The Dallas group is one
of many Wagner Societies all over the world. It is a non-profit
organization open to anyone who enjoys the works of Richard Wagner and
who would like to participate in the Society’s activities.
The Wagner Society of Dallas has monthly meetings and programs which
feature recitals, lectures, video screenings, receptions for opera
singers and personalities, and trips to Wagner performances in other
cities. We welcome music lovers who are already familiar with Wagner’s
works as well as those who may want to become more knowledgeable about
Member Benefits include attendance at programs, our newsletter,
discount on books and CD’s, advance notice of events and selected ticket
services, receipt of the Membership Directory, ticket allotments to
Bayreuth, and an active link with fellow Wagnerians throughout the
Wagner Society of Dallas members fondly remember Sheila Jones Harms, who
was an active member of the organization, and who presented many
interesting programs and recitals over the years.
Now, WSD member Ed Flaspoehler has completed his biography of Sheila,
called The Cold War Soprano: Memoirs of a Singer-Spy.
If you are interested in opera and fine singing, Sheila's biography
will surely be of interest to you. Not only will you get an inside
glimpse of what it takes to become an opera singer, and learn about the
world of opera in Post- WWII Vienna, but, because Sheila and her husband
Werner, were also CIA agents, you will get a look at the Cold War from a
personal point of view.
You can get a copy of Ed's book on the internet at
