Clara Doria (1844-1931)

Clara Kathleen Barnett Rogers was an American composer, singer, and teacher of English origin. In 1863 she made her singing debut in Italy as Isabelle in Meyerbeer's "Robert le Diable," under the name Clara Doria. Triumphant throughout Italy, Doria resumed her concert career in London in 1866. The vocalist went to the U.S. in 1871. Concentrating on composition and instruction, she began teaching singing at the New England Conservatory. Doria wrote extensively and published a multi-volume autobiography. She composed chamber works which display talented craftsmanship. Doria's songs are frequently touched with humor. Her manuscripts and correspondence are housed in the Library of Congress.
