André d’Arkor

 André d'Arkor He studied music at Liege Conservatoire and in 1925 he made his debut at Liege in Lakmé. After three years at Liege, he moved to Ghent where he built up a repertoire of 80 roles, then in 1929 he was at Lyons and in 1930 he moved to the Theatre de la Monnaie at Brussels which was to become his artistic home. In the 1930’s he enhanced his reputation tremendously as a recording artist and although he made guest appearances throughout Europe, plus a thirteen city tour of America, he was very much a “home” singer. The WW 2 cut short a career which could have been much more glorious.
