MARSTON - Alma Gluck (1630 words)
Gluck's success in five of the Metropolitan's Sunday evening concerts led the tenor Alessandro Bonci to hire her as an assisting artist for his tour of Cuba the summer after her initial season.
In 1921, Zimbalist suggested that they tour together, and she welcomed the challenge, telling the press that she was returning to performance because she was "fated to sing." Audiences gave her a rousing welcome and some critics were kind, but recurring bouts of illness and attendant vocal mishaps made the venture less than satisfactory.
Gluck continued to record, but none of the titles cut between 1920 and 1924 was released.
