Annual Event Gives Thrill of
Patriotic Fervor to
CHORUS SHOWS ADVANCE
By HENRIETTA M. REES
The second annual concert by the
Menoma Chorus, under James Ed
ward Carnal, conductor, took place j
Thursday at the Brandeis theater and
brought many interesting features
with it. The chorus was assisted by
Mrs. Louise Jansen Wylie and by
Mr. Henry Cox and the Omaha
Chamber Music society.
This body of singers shows much
improvement in its work over that of
last year. Its quality is much prettier
and there is a greater assurance and
smoothness in everything that it does.
The attacks were uniformly good,
the rhythm well marked and at times
inspiring, and the interpretations
stamped with many evidences of con
scientious training. The opening num
ber, "The Star-Spangled Banner,"
iung by the chorus and audience and
accompanied by piano and orchestra,
vat the occasion for quite a patriotic
Flag Tableau Enthusei Audience
The stage was decorated with bunt
ing and flags, with two immense
flags forming a background behind
the chorus. During the singing young
girls appeared in all the boxes, wav
ing American flags, and the two flags
at the back parted, revealing a large
Sicture of President Wilson. A hearty
urst of applause greeted this novel
opening. The stirring "Soldier's Chor
us," from Faust, by Gounod, appro
priately followed, and was highly ef
fective fn its military swing, and in
spiring melodies. Here and in the ar
rangement of the "Beautiful Blue
Danube," by Strauss, with orchestra
accompaniment, the tenor section ap
peared to excellent advantage, while
in the "Rocking in de Win'," by
IJeidlinger, and the "Song of the Tor
eador," from Carmen, with Forrest
Dennis in the solo part, the basses and
Baritones deserved especial mention.
Mr. Dennis uses his splendid bass
voice easily and creditably.
I Other Military Features.
Many unusual features were intro
duced by the "Bugle Song," by
Buck. Miss Madge West, concert
master of the orchestra aided the
. piano accompaniment materially with
the satisfying tones of her violin, and
bugle off stage effectively answered
the chorus in various portions of the
song. A dramatic setting of "The
Sword of Ferrara," by Bullard, for
male chorus, and "Good Night, by
Buck, completed the numbers pre
sented by the chorus.
Mrs. Wylie's Share.
Mrs. Wylie, as usual, charmed by
her luscious quality of voice, and the
artistry of her singing. She presented
two groups of solos in a most finished
manner, and was quite overwhelmed
with flowers and appreciation. "The
Pine Tree," by Salter: "Bendemeer's
Stream," "At Twilight,1 by Neviq, and
the brilliant Clouch Lcighter, "My
Lover He Comes On the Skeep9 with
which sha closed her second group,
were among the interesting and at
The Omaha Chamber Music so
ciety, under Mr, Cox, besides accom
panying the chorus in two numbers,
played a group of compositions for
- Accompanists a Factor.
The accompaniments of Mr. Duffield
for Miss Wylie, and of Miss Nora Neal
for the chorus, were essential factors
of the evening's pleasure. Encores
were generously granted by the var
ious participants, and the audience
waa cordial throughout the program
with hearty and generous applause.
