Alma Gluck

Alma Gluck was born on May 11, 1884 in Ias,i, Bucharest, Romania, United States, is Soprano. The rags to riches story of the humble Alma Gluck is worth a read. A dutiful housewife, this simple woman became one of the greatest opera singers the world has ever witnessed. Though her talents were discovered much later in life, yet she managed to etch her name in the annals of music’s history. Originally from Romania, Gluck moved to the United States of America at a very early age. She inherited the knack for music from her father and an unparalleled voice from her mother. When a famous opera personality heard her for the first time, he was so impressed that he immediately arranged for her singing classes. She received great appreciation after her first performance and thus began her brilliant and successful seven-year long opera career. Gluck, however, was not much of an opera lover. When she became an established figure in the field of music, she began doing recitals and even carved a niche as a concert artist. Later, she devoted herself to recordings and concerts. But nonetheless, there have been very few singers of her caliber till today. Her clarity of pronunciation, splendid tone and precision in high ranges is flabbergasting. Gluck even initiated efforts at making music a whole lot more desirable a career for womenfolk.

Her daughter Marcia Davenport was the child of her first marriage (to Bernard Glick, an insurance man). Gluck later married Violinist Efrem Zimbalist and had two children, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. (1918–2014) and Maria. Gluck evidently adopted her professional surname as a variation of her first husband's surname ("Glick").


Gluck retired to New Hartford, Connecticut, to raise her family in 1925. Although by background an assimilated and nonpracticing Jew who continued to consider herself ethnically Jewish, she found herself attracted, along with her husband Efrem, to Anglican Christianity, and they regularly attended the Episcopal Church in New Hartford. Efrem Jr. and Maria were both christened there, and the couple placed Efrem in an Episcopal boarding school in New Hampshire. Efrem Jr. later became active in evangelical circles and was one of the founders of Trinity Broadcasting Network. Gluck recorded several Christian hymns in duet with Louise Homer, among them "Rock of Ages", "Whispering Hope", "One Sweetly Solemn Thought", and "Jesus, Lover of My Soul".


After a long illness, she was taken to the Rockefeller Institute Hospital in Manhattan, New York City, but died from liver failure several days later, at 9:30 am on October 27, 1938, at the age of 54.
