Thrilling Moment in Great War Drama
By HENRIETTA 51. It EES. i
HE announcement that Mr. am' ;
Mr. Thonwis J. Kelly are
oon to leave Omaha to r.i iko
thrlr home In Chicago came ,
as a surprise to Omaha's mus- '
Ira I colony, although ninny of :
their friend hve wmdi red that tin
have not been tempted to a Inrg.-r field I
before this. For many y ars they luwe ,
occupied leaning populous In Omaha a t
musical life. In pedapoKtcal, reiital ami
rhurch work as wrll ,11 In their con
nection with th Mciuli lssohn choir. They '
will be greatly missed, for Mn Kelly j
with her artistic finning and Xr. Kelly 1
In hi many musical activities l.avo ;
exerted a strong influence for the high st ;
class of music In our community. Mr. j
and Mrs. Kelly have devoted much of 1
their hlme to recital programs ant
for these and Mr. Kelly's lecture
recitals there Is naturally urentor oppor- '
tunlty In a larger place. Those who !
have heard Mr. Kelly's lecture recitnls 1
from time vo time, either separately or I
In aeries, know of the moat amount of j
enjoyment and knowledge they contain. !
Mr. Kelly Is a deep th iiker and an '
excellent talker, and those lectures ,
written from his keenly Individual view- j
point and based upon a thorough famil- j
lararlty not only with the art of mimic
but with the art of using the Knpl'sh
language aa well, are never pednntlc, !
tut sparkle with wit and apt tlhistta- j
tlon, and hold the Interest throughout, i
The musical Illustrations which are so
often a part, and In which he Is so ably 1
assisted by Mr. Kelly never tall to
rous enthusiasm and delight. At the '
various time when thesw recitals have
been given In Omaha, they have never
failed to attract larse audience, who
were unanimous in their praise.
It has been the writer's privilege to
attend several of them and thouph many
other lecture have been heard between
times, Mr. Kelly' lecture are always
o full of meat, and the points driven
home so cleverly that they have been
remembered where others were forgotten.
Thl was especially true of the series
given Under the Tuesday Morning Musi
cal club some time ago when the spacious
Joslyn home was filled to capacity by
There la no doubt but that there will
be a demand for these lecture in our
larger sister city and their gain will be
Omaha' loss. But Omaha cannot afford
to lose the Kellys, and. more than all
else. It cannot afford to lose the Men
delssohn choir, which Mr. Kelly organ
lied and ha conducted for several years.
Although thl body of singer Is made
tip of the same kind of people that other
choral bodies contain In other cities, it
Is a recognised musical fact, attested
to by musical visitor like Frederick
Stock, Arthur Gibson and others, that
under Mr. Kelly's baton they have given
performance which far eclipse the vast
majority of choral organisations found
nn where If the Kellys would do
cide to spend a short season here
each year, possibly this could be
continued by adopting the . plan of
rehearsal used by the Mendelssohn
choir In Toronto. There the different sec
tions meet different nU'ht of the week
and thoroughly work Over1 their parts
before general rehearsals. It makes more
'rehearsals covering a shorter period of
time, but in three or four months the
" choir could be prepared to give concerts
with or without orchestra. In this way
"we could keep a string upon the Kelly
and at the same tunc lock forward to
future public performances of such choral
. music a have awakened unstinted praise
from press, public and those keenly dis
criminating musicians, who make up the
personnel of the Chicago Symphony orchestra.

The following notice from "Neu-Strel-Ut"
concerning the conducting of an
opera there "Die Foersterchrlsttl" Is of
interest concerning a former Omaha boy,
who for several years studied piano here
with Mr. Duffield:
'The musical directing waa In the hand
of Kapellmeister Stanlslav Letovsky, who
was formerly director In Kiel and Posen.
On this occasion he swung the baton hero J Wife."
ror the first time. The overture showed '
and the rest of the performance justified j
the belief that the 'st&ff in his hand'
served not only for the beating of the
measure, but also as a marshal's staff,
with the help of which Mr. Letovsky
brings his individual conception of the
work to the notice. This proves an artist
sat at the desk who not only can read a
score fluently, but also one to whom the
spirit of the composer flows from the
score. This spirit is transferred through j
the medium of the baton to the other per- .
formers. The orcheetra played with a j
refreshing spontaneity under the new dt- ;
rector, who understood how to bring the ;
volume of the instruments Into the right
proportion with the human (voice and o

and stage Into one harmonlou whole."
