Summary
The New York Singing Teachers' Association (NYSTA) records consist of the administrative and financial records of the organization. Specific materials include bulletins, minutes (for general and board meetings), discussion group papers, general meeting speeches, announcements, forms, reports, correspondence, financial records, programs, and scrapbooks. The bulk of the records focus on NYSTA's documentation of internal and public activities from 1924 to 1997. The few items dated between 1906 - 1924 within the collection deal with legal aspects regarding the forming of the association.
Personal records of Anna E. Ziegler and Dr. Arthur de Guichard, the founders of the association, are not found within this collection, nor is there a significant amount of information on NYSTA's role in helping to form The National Association of Teachers of Singing, Inc. in 1944.
Biography
The New York Singing Teachers' Association (NYSTA), a professional organization for vocal teachers, was founded and incorporated in 1906 under the direction of Anna E. Ziegler and Dr. Arthur de Guichard. First named the National Association of Teachers of Singing, the organization acquired its current name officially in 1917. Among its founding members were Enrico Caruso, Emma Eames, Geraldine Farrar, Mary Garden, Ernestine Schumann-Heink, Antonio Scotti, Marcella Sembrich, and Luisa Tetrazinni. The NYSTA strives to encourage high standards of musicianship, artistic singing, voice production and vocal instruction. Another major goal of the Association is to promote American vocal music and the craft of singing in English. NYSTA encourages youthful talent through the distribution of recital awards. It also furthers its goals through its Discussion Group meetings, at which many papers have been presented on such subjects as breathing, diction, tone production, interpretation, ethics, and acting for singers. General meetings are held monthly, October through May. At each annual luncheon, a citation for meritorious achievement is awarded to an outstanding American singer of American training. Past honorees have included Roland Hayes, Eleanor Steber, Walter Cassel, Risë Stevens, Leontyne Price, Robert Merrill, Eileen Farrell, James McCracken, Regina Resnik, George Shirley, and Marilyn Horne.
