Elsa Flemming was born in Brooklyn, N. Y., in 1880.
As a child she exhibited strong musical taste and an ability to remember and reproduce long and difficult compositions. To her father, for many years bass soloist in Trinity Church, New York, is largely due her early proficiency. She had composed several graceful ballets and nocturnes. Her best known pieces are the salon waltzes, “La Jeune Debutante”, and “La Fete des Fleurs”.
She died in 1906.
