Salem College, Winston-Salem, N. C., Friday, November 21, 1947.
The concert of the Winston-Salem
Civic Orchestra, which is to be given
Sunday afternoon at 3 o clock in
Reynolds Auditorium, contains a
varied program of classic, romantic,
and modern music. The first in a
series of three concerts is featuring
as its soloists Amelia Cardwell, sop
rano, and Ted Bodenheimer, bari
Works to be performed by the
orchestra include the “Symphony
No. 8” (first movement) by Beet
hoven, “Tanglewood Pool” by
Chase-Feidler, “Andante Cantabile”
by Tschaikowsky, and “Soirees
Musicales” by Benjamin Britten.
Mr. Bodenheimer will sing the
‘ ‘ Recitative and Aria, Vision Fugi
tive ’ ’ by Massenet and ‘ ‘ Bob’s
Aria,” from “Old Maid and the
Thief” by Menotti. Mrs. Card
well’s solos are “Ah, Perfido” from
“Fidelio” by Beethoven and “Ga
votte” from “Manon” by Mas
senet. Mrs. Cardwell and Mr. Bod
enheimer will also sing a duet from
‘ ‘ La Traviata ” by Verdi.
Ted Bodenheimer is soloist in the
Episcopal Church here in Wins^n-
Salem. He sang the leading role in
last year’s performance of “The
Gondoliers” by Gilbert and Sullivan
V and also had a leading part in Offen-
bach’s “The Tales of Hoffman”,
which was presented last year at
the Piedmont Festival.
Amelia Cardwell is from Greens
boro and will sing* a leading part in
“The Student Prince,” which will
be presented in Greensboro next
week. Last year she sang in the
Seaboard Opera Festival in Raleigh
and the Piedmont Festival in Win-
ston-Salem. Both ^fr. Bodenheimer
and Mrs. Cardwell are members of
a civic operetta group which per
formed the operetta “Old Maid and
The Thief” by Menotti last week
by Peirano Aifeen
A Winston-Salem audience, includ
ing two bus-fulls of Salemites, felt
Well repaid for having braved a
freezing rain to see the Barter ver
sion of “Twelfth Night.”
Once inside familiar Reynolds
Auditorium (which we’ve seen on a
clear star-lit night only once in three
years,) the spectators were trans
ported by colorful scenery and cos
tumes to warm, friendly Illyria.
The acting was both 'smooth and
convincing. Ray Boyles neither de
tracted from nor added anything
into the part of the irresolute senta-
mentalist, Orsino. A pert Viola was
played by Joan Mortimer, and a
' little too coy Olivia by Pern Ben
nett. To make things lively, Gerry
Jedd in the role of Maria flitted
about the stage with an amazing,
if St. Vitus-like, energy.
The height of audience delight
however, was inspired by Don Hart
as the rediculously stern and self-
loving Malvolio, and the comedians
of the night, Frederick Warriner and
Larry Parks as Sir Andrew and Sir
Toby. If slapstick perfected can be
called an art, then they were artists
Out of equal motives ot curiosity
and admiration, we pushed our way
j backstage through swarms of bel
ligerent teenagers after the per
formance to see Sir Andrew. To
our surprise Mr. Warriner was wip
ing off years of age as well as
»iake-up. He is really a tall, good-
looking blond from Pasadena, Cali
fornia. He was born, as he said,
in “19—” (we’d guess his age at
30-35.) During his career he lias
played Richard II with the Pasadena
