I heard Bob and Evelyne several times in St. Louis in the last couple of years in the '50s. They were the best. Heard them at Petite Pigalle and talked to them at our table. I remember he said that Evelyne could not read music, but had sung one of the major Bach works! They both had such wonderful voices.
Ten or more years later, I took my two children, then five and six, to a one of their concerts. They were completely engaged for the entire performance. Partly it was your parents' personalities (Bob's sparkling eyes and Evelyne's lovely voice. We have several of their albums, and I will now try to find something on a CD.
I believe there were some Beers in the Kirkwood area. Peace.
