Biographical Note

The Krantz Family Concert Company was a Chautauqua act that flourished during the period, 1926 -- 1931. The family orchestral quartet of Mr. and Mrs. C.L. Krantz and their two daughters, Audrey Z. and Zona A. played as many as fifteen string and brass instruments. Mr. Krantz also rendered crayon drawings and Zona recited. They performed on both the Redpath Vawter and United Chautauquas circuits.
