the new pres.-
dent on Friday night.
Mary Drewry Estes, certificate
inipil of Mary Ruth Haig, Presented
a program of unusually well f leeted
and well played numbers on May 21
in Ihe auditorium. Compositions
were chosen from the works of
Beethoven — clafic; Chopin and
Brahms—romantic; Dehussy, Boro
din, and Rachmaninoff—modern.
A thoughtful interpretation was
given of the well-knoum and well-
liked first movement of the r*? on a to
Pathetique by Beethoven. The firm
tone of the performer gave an al
most masculine assurance.
The “romantic” group proved that
Drewry could also pla.y with deli
cacy and refinement._ Undoubtedly
she was at her best in the C sharp
minor prelude and the Brahms
Rhapsodie. _ .
Ann Seltman, soprano, assisting
on the program, sang three lighter
numbers which afforded pleasant re
laxation after the serious prfediiig
groups. They were very well sung
and well received.
Minstrels, by Debussy, afforded
the pianist an opportunity for hu
mor This morsel, however, is not
written in Debussy’s best manner.
\ serene impression was given in
The Convent by Borodin, a new
composer. A brilliant Mimax was
reached in the tried and true Polt-
chinelle by Rachmaninoff, which
showed the pianist at her best.
