Biographical Note

Carl Venth (1860-1938), a German composer, violinist, conductor, music educator, and scholar, was a leading classical music figure in Texas in the first half of the 20th century. After studying with Ferdinand Hiller at the Cologne Conservatory and Henry Wieniawski in Brussels, Venth became the concertmaster of the Flemish Opera House at age 18 and then became the concertmaster of the Opera Comique in Paris in 1879. In 1880 he immigrated to New York City, where he led and organized several orchestras and musical ensembles, such as the Venth College of Music and the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra.

In 1908, Venth moved to Texas to work as violin director at the Kidd-Key College in Sherman. He also served as dean of the School of Fine Arts at Texas Woman's College (later Texas Wesleyan University) in Fort Worth from 1914 through 1931 and as head of the music department of Westmoorland College (now part of Trinity University) in San Antonio from 1931 through 1938. Additionally, Venth directed the Frohsinn Chorus, conducted the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, and organized and served as the first conductor of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra. He served as president of the State Music Teachers' Association, receiving an honorary life membership. He also accepted honorary degrees from the Chicago Musical College and New York College.

On July 13, 1899, Venth married Norwegian-American Cathinka Firth Myhr (1867-1958).
