Tours and concerts around the world

Throughout her professional life, Melba travelled extensively appearing in opera seasons throughout Europe and America.

She also gave countless numbers of concerts before during and after her operatic appearances.

Many concerts were part of a tour while others were for royalty and charities, particularly those related to the arts, and during World War I the war effort.

Melba raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for worthy causes and it is an on-going exercise of the museum to compile a list of the concerts and the funds raised.
