1*1 A>0 RECITAL
Tuesday evening, May 19, in the
College Music Hall. Miss Josephine
Leonard presented Miss Vera Cnmp
l.oll in a graduating pianc recital.
Miss Campbell was assisted by Miss
i Elizabeth Hucrgius, Soprano, student
I v. it h Mrs. A. W. Mohn.
! Throughout the entire programme.
Miss Campbell evinced good technique
land fine interpretive value, the basis
jot which is natural artistic sense. In
the Beethoven, she excelled in the
varied rendition of the three difficult
movements. Her absolhte command
of her art in its perfection was shown
in the "Funeral March," where Gounod
has so strangely woven the dignity?.ot
??? ath with the playfulness of life
Her tone work in the "Romance" was
singularly true and effective and she
brought out all the poetry and deeper
meaning of Debussy's loveliest "Ara
besque." But it was in the extremely
difficult Verdi-Liszt that Miss Camp
bell played most brilliantly especially
toward the close where unhurried,
end with perfect command, she exe
cuted the climax of her programme
wi'h the same poise, nice interpreta
tion, and depth of feeling that char
acterised her entire programme.
Miss Hoggins Is to be congratulated
on her contribution to the evening's
pleasure. The first group of songs
was given with the same lyric sweet
ness and power which always charac
teiiies her work, while a pleasing in
terpretation of the last group added
much to the value of her performance.
After the programme, a pleasant,
informal reception was held in the so
cial balls, where Miss Campbell with
Miss Mae Campbell, her Marshal-tn
C'.iief, received their friends. Punch
vus Served, and a very delightful hour
was enjoyed. !
