The results of running the program were most encouraging (from the point of view of music education) and delightful because of the intelligent answers which the youngsters gave to questions by the performers. Mrs. Margaret Richards, music specialist in the Salt Lake City schools, expiained that the Young Audiences programs are presented each year in every one of the 41 city scho^s including the 1' junior high schools. The Young Audiences schedules two concerts a vear in each of the schools "and tries to vary the program with emphasis upon the strings, the woodwinds and the percussion.

Working i n darker tonal values with transparent washes the artist maintains strength to reinforce his com.-': scene. Perpetually Enduring The old house in "West Side" s e e ms perpetually enduring in spite of -weathering cornices and worn down sills. The firm lines of the builder's intent recur through careful drawing and concern with strong pigment. Casual rows of drying clothes scarcely deny the dignity of strong forms, adding only quaint decorative charm. Command of a variety of effects is seen in a varied use of wet and dry ground techniques. ^ The latter seems ovor-kiiuuigeu in ".Newport" in which a. dry brush, useful in deriving lively textures creates textural surfeit that loses simplicity and solidity. Diagonal movements in "Dry Dock" seem overpowering, but the drapery of sail cloth and mooring lines in "Harbor Town" and dramatic force to rectangular movements in the design. The flat rendering in lively color with a strident drawing i technique in "Gothic Pat- terns" is one of the most engaging pieces in the show. A Ruthless Hand A poignant period of change,. occasions painterly comment from a number of artists who see a ruthless hand laid heavily on noble edifices that link the present and the past. Among them is H. Edward Neslen's oil study of an old building, in the new show by Associated Utah Artists at the Utah Historical Society Gallery. He portrays the eloquent lines of a firm house with walls breached by the forces of change and neglect • • Herman Oliekan's small head study, "Woman of Kentucky"; Thelma B. Parson's "Winter Landscape," B. F. Larsen's "Mt. Olympus, Lenore Ferro's stfll life "Spring" president of the Salt Lake organization, pointed out that the performers are often members of the Utah Symphony, which of course is the finest professional musical group in the state. In the particular Wasatch School concert, it was a string quartet consisting of Sally Peck Lentz, Richard Dicksou, David Bennett and Carol Edison. After a careful word of introduction by each of ihe quartet members in turn, they would proceed to perform such chamber works as Haydn's "The Bird" quartet, first movement; the same composer's Serenade; Beethoven's "The Harp" quartet, first movement, and Bela Bartok's string composition "The> Fly." Amazing Response The program was designed for children in the fourth, fifth and sixth grades and their response was amazing. During the question-and-answer period, which followed each of the compositions, the youngsters' obvious interest and knowledge overflowed. Mrs. Richards pointed out that many of the answers ~ worthy pf a freshman college student when I went' to school — were the result of-the fact that a large number of the youngsters studied string instruments either in school or privately. . Notable Answer One notable answer, I thought, was from a young man who was asked what the" climax of a composition was. He said, "It's where it gets louder and louder and finally the loudest." That really is a working, definition. Darius Milhaud, the "eminent French composer whom Pacem in Terris received. Its American premiere by the Utah Symphony, will observe his 75th birthday anniversary this year. Although he is crippled with arthritis and confined to a wheelchair, the famous musician continues to commute from his home in Paris in the winter; to Aspen, Colo., for the annual summer music festival there, and to Oakland, Calif., where he teaches at Mills Collegel Remarkable Man Milhaud has been a figure 5n modem music since the early 1920's. One of the members of "Les Six," the avant garde musicians of the period, he is currently working to finish his Opus 423, "La Colline EterneUe," a remarkable achievement for a man with three-quarters of a century under his belt. - scape draw attention among the oils. Matilda Thurman's "Muted Autumn," Lura Redd's "Water Lilies," Veria Bin-ell's "Dog Show," "Sara Wilson's "Chrysanthemums" and Deana McDonald's "Sea Scape." are outstanding in the watercolor division.
