Anna Case Draws a Crowd, Part 2
In the early part of her career, while she was still regularly singing roles with the Metropolitan Opera, the concert and recital career of soprano Anna Case was managed by Fred O. Renard, the husband of her vocal teacher, Mme. Augusta Ohrstrom-Renard. By the middle of 1917, with her opera career winding down, Anna Case signed with the Metropolitan Musical Bureau, an agency with close ties to the opera company. They kept up the practice of placing full and half-page ads in the various music trade journals, trumpeting the success of one of their biggest attractions. I have collected several here.
