“Born in Budapest, Tibor Kozma graduated from the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in 1931. He then pursued further studies in Dresden at the Hochschule fur Musik in the orchestral program associated with the Sachsische Staatskapelle Dresden. After graduating in 1933 he worked as an opera conductor in Europe. At the outbreak of World War II, Kozma left Europe to join the conducting staff at the opera house in Quito, Ecuador in 1939. In 1941 he emigrated to the United States and settled in New York City. In 1948 he became a vocal coach at the Metropolitan Opera, eventually joining the conducting staff in 1950. Kozma made his conducting debut at the Metropolitan Opera House on January 4, 1951, leading a production of Johann Strauss II's DIE FLEDERMAUS. He conducted a total of 82 performances at the house over the next six years. He then had a successful teaching career at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University from 1957 until his death 19 years later.”
