Biography

Charles Joseph Dyer was an aspiring opera singer from Massachusetts who traveled to Germany in 1891 to learn from the European masters. Over the following ten years, Dyer led a peripatetic life, studying music in Germany, France, England, and Italy, and occasionally earning a living as a singing master himself. Dyer appears to have been respected, and he enjoyed life in social circles that included artists and the elite of Europe and expatriate America.
