Ethyl Hayden (Soprano)

Born: 1897 - Washington or Pennsylvania, USA

The American lyric soprano, Ethyl Hayden, studied with Marcella Sembrich (1858-1935).

Ethyl Hayden made her first appearance in New York in a recital at the Aeolian Hall on March 10, 1922 and “showed a voice, an intelligence and a style that ought to take her far” (NY Times). She had previously sung on various occasions outside of New York. On February 12, 1935 she sang Maurice Ravel’s Three Poems of Stéphane Mallarmé in their Carnegie Hall premiere, with the National Orchestral Association conducted by Leon Barzin. She also appeared in Europe.

Ethyl Hayden was favourite among large numbers of concertgoers, and in 1924 gave pleasure to many thousands of unseen listeners when she sang the role of Marguerite in the concert performance of Faust, given at Mankato, Minnesota and broadcast through WLAG. She partipated in the premiere recording of J.S. Bach's Coffee Cantata (BWV 211) with the harpsichordist Ernst Victor Wolff (1937).
