American Landmark Festivals has a number of special projects dedicated to the celebration of important landmarks in the history of music, including special tributes to the immortal Austrian tenor Richard Tauber and the incomparable soprano Jenny Lind, the "Swedish Nightingale."


     In 1991 at Carnegie Hall ALF celebrated the hundredth anniversary of the birth of the great tenor Richard Tauber with a gala concert featuring, among others, Alfredo Kraus, Jerry Hadley, James King, Vinson Cole, Judy Kaye, Helga Demesch, Martile Rowland, some of Tauber's own colleagues--Jarmila Novotna, Evelyn Laye and Marta Eggerth--and the two winners of the first Richard Tauber International Competition for Tenors.

     In 1994 American Landmark Festivals held the second Richard Tauber International Competition for Tenors, and presented the First Prize on May 16th, Tauber's birthday, to American tenor John Uhlenhopp. In November, 1995, ALF held finals for the  third such competition in which Arn Price was the First Prize winner, and in 1998 mezzo soprano Wendy Hoffman was the FIrst Prize winner in a special ALF competition to honor Tauber's legendary partner, Jarmila Novotna.

     Through the RIchard Tauber Institute of Vocal Arts ALF has continued to present lectures, films, musical events which highlight the work and artistry of Tauber.
