Charles Wels

Charles Wels (August 24 1825 in Prague – May 12 1906 in New York City)[1] was a Bohemian-American pianist, organist, composer, and music teacher. He studied under Václav Tomášek before relocating to the US. In the US he did piano compositions and a funeral march for Abraham Lincoln.[2] (The Library of Congress has scanned in 60 compositions by Wels into its American Memory collection.)

He was briefly a Polish court-musician from 1847 to 1849.[3] In the 1860s he was organist at Christ Church of New York.[4]

His pupils included Samuel Brenton Whitney.
