Geraint Evans (1922 - 1992)

Geraint Evans was born into a musical family where his father, a choirmaster, actively encouraged his musical gifts as a singer and gave him violin lessons. Singing in a performance of Mendelssohn’s Elijah at the age of only seventeen he was noticed by Idloes Owen, in whose choir Evans sang, and was persuaded by him to study singing seriously. Having joined the RAF after the outbreak of World War II, Evans trained as a radio mechanic and participated in services entertainment. After the war, while stationed in Hamburg, he sang there and took lessons from Theo Hermann. Evans later studied at the Guildhall School of Music in London with Walter Hyde and with Fernando Carpi in Geneva; but it was through Hermann that he successfully auditioned for Karl Rankl, the music director of the new Covent Garden Opera. He made his debut there in 1948 as the Night Watchman / Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg.
