Original Compositions
Given At Music Hour
The original compositions of the
members of Dr. Vardell’s composi
tion class were given at Music Hour
on Thursday.
The opening number was an or
gan PRELUDE, played by Margery
Craig. The central theme was of
a minor mode and it moved along
very quietly, at times broken by
majestic chords. A MOOD for piano
was played by Katy B. Love and
was one of quietness and reflective
ness. Margery Craig returned to
play gavotte and MUSSETTE
which were strikingly modern com
positions for the piano. MOODS,
the vocal number composed and
sung by Juanita Miller Winecoff,
was a lovely song about the rain
and a brown bird. A LEGEND for
piano was played by Catherine
Swinson. This composition was also
very modern and contained some
brilliant imssages of counter har
mony. The two compositions of vio
linist Elizabeth Swinson were very
different. ADAGIO Mas very quiet

first oiiera production. The Old Maid
and the Thief, Monday evening at
the Reynold’s .Auditorium. The pro
duction was under the careful dir
ection of Clifford Bair and a supreme
setting meticulously worked out by
the Little Theatre staff.
The vocal highlight of the even
ing was Laetitia’s ■ solo, sung by
Jane Frazier in scene six. Giles
Smith, very aptly , filled the role of
Bob, the beggar and “thief,” even
to his splendid and delibiwate sing
ing off-key in the drunken scene.
The best character was Ella Lou
Taylor as the old maid, “Miss
Todd.” Her acting was superb. Diana
Dyer gave a vry satisfactory per
formance as “Miss Pinkerton.”
The opera was exceptionally well
staged with modern settings. The
16 scenes which composed the opera
were set on the stage and high
lighted at various points as the
play progressed so that time was
not lost in scene shifting.
