TlfR OMAHA SUNDAY RKK: NOVEMBER 21. MIS. 7-B H Gossip About Music and Musicians Thrilling Moment in Great War Drama T 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 interested listener. 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.

What ; Omaha Theaters Offer for. the. Week (Continued from Page Six.) !1 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 to blend the entire effect of orchestra ; and stage Into one harmonlou whole." The paper also give high praise to his wife, who took the title role, and upon j whose performance the effoct of the piece I depends, and whose performance met with 1 the- unqualified approval of a old-out I house. , knew Just how every detail Raven" should be done. of 'The Faraoua stag atar In feature photo play are billed for thl week at the Hipp theater.
