Biographical / Historical
In 1917 Evans was invited to solo at Queen’s Hall in London, where she met Scottish baritone Arnold Gange Adams, known professionally as Fraser Gange. The couple married shortly thereafter and toured together to New Zealand and Australia in 1920. They then moved to New York where her husband taught at Juilliard and other music schools in the area. In 1949 the couple moved to Baltimore, where Fraser Gange taught voice at the Peabody Conservatory. Evans was known socially as Amy Evans Gange or Amy Gange but retained the use of her maiden name in musical performances.
After the death of her husband, Amy Evans gave some public performances, including one in 1960 when she returned to the Eisteddfod festival at Cardiff to sing “Hear Ye O Israel” once more. She continued to be an active member of the music community until her death in 1983.
