if Go ,v5 Y v y t v V r 'Zk- By JACKIE WHITE Tcnnessran Fashion Kriilor There are no revolutionary changes slated for the beauty world yet . But the cosmel ics industry cont inues to gush with new products and ideas for making us prettier or at least perhaps more interesting. Bangs are enjoying a noteworthy comeback now. for instance. Almost every model in Europe is wearing them at any rate. They emphasize your eyes, of course, and that's just another excuse to do your own bit of magical emphasizing. Glenn Roberts of Elizabeth Ardensees it that way. He uses as many as six different colors to paint his "easy elegance look" on the eyes. He combines a soft blue and yellow frost under the brow with a smudge of gray in the crease and under the eyes. The eyes are outlined with a thin line of dark brown and lashes are brushed with three layers of mascara. Cheeks are contoured with a henna hued cream rouge and lips are done with a russet gloss on the bottom lip and a deep shade of russet lipstick on the top, where a white pencil is used vaguely to contour. It's a dramatic statement for summer nights. Then there's Anion's new collection of "Undiscovered Island" colors (they do get flowery), a range of very glossy pinky to fruity shades. For those gentle, romantic souls Roberts does a face beginning with beige foundation and "Apple Ice" rouge, and ribbons the eyes with color crayons of "Freshwater Blue," "Smokeberry," and "Peachtree" frosted eye shadow. He also uses navy eyeliner and mascara. The lip color is a glossy "Country Strawberry." 0 M ' ts V ."Vy'A'v. ill?' hy, .A I 4 1 To - 1 U..(, - . ' -tern, w 3 ? "41 9 '3 A'.

Nina Debuts in Park Concert By CLARA HIEROXYMl'S The green grass carpet and green roof of tree branches in Centennial Park will become a concert hall for a young Nashvillian's first big public performance Sunday. When the Nashville Symphony orchestra is presented in the summer park series, in an all-Gershwin program, 1.1-vear old Nina Gamble Kennedy will be the piano soloist, playing Rhapsody in Blue. Nina is a native Nashvil-lian, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Kennedy, both of whom are members of the piano faculty at Fisk University. Her parents ga ve her her first instruct ion in piano, but at age 7 she entered Blair Academy to study with William Higgs. After three years, she bo-. came a student of Enid Ka-tahnat Blair Academy and is continuing under her guidance. NINA. WHO'LL he a 9th grader at Ewing Park junior high school this fall . says she has no set number of hours to practice daily. "It's whatever I feel like, usually," she said, "except for special occasions like this, and I find myself practicing up to six hours a day." Nina is calm voiced, with a pleasant, deliberate way of speaking, answering a grown-up's questions with polite consideration. "What about future plans? The concert stage or tcach-ing,M "Oh. I'd like to be a concert pianist." she said with enthusiasm. "Then I'll probably teach when I get too old to travel around." She expects to attend Fisk University for her academic work, perhaps staying on for a master's degree in music. She is especially fond of the romantic periods in music, the 18th century and some of the early 20th cent ury music, and of course jazz. ki&Mityf ' fh &32&''' $ ' - V Staff photo by Dole Ernshorqer Nino Kennedy rehearses for her appearance as piano soloist Sunday at Centennial Park when she will perform with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra. In the all-Gershwin proaram she will play Rhapsody in Blue. NINA LOVES travel, having acquired a taste for it from infancy. Her father was for 12 years the director of Fisk's Jubilee Singers. She enjoys art and ceramics and credits her teacher. Ethyl Ladd. for her special interest in the latter. Speaking of her Gershwin solo for Sunday's concert, she said she heard piano student, Carol Elligan Martin play it at the 1973 Fisk commencement, and especially liked the way she interpreted it. "Carol encouraged me to keep working, at a point in my life when I had to make a decision whether to go on with piano or give it up." She set about that summer to learn Rhapsody, and subsequently auditioned with Symphony conductor, Thor Johnson. He liked her work and remembered her for the solo part when this concert was being scheduled. NINA WAS presented in her first complete solo recital when sIk was nine. She was the youngest of more thanTO soloists participating in the Young Artist Competition at Midland. Texas last January, and though she did not win top honors . she was warmly commended by the judges for her excelleni performance there. In April she was inducted inthe National Junior Honor Society at Ewing Park school, and that same month won a Myra Jackson Blair scholarship for continued study at Blair Academy. This fall Nina will go to Knoxville to compete at state level, in the junior high division, in a competition to be judged by members of the S National Music Teachers Association. At Blair, Mrs. Katahn says of her, "She's terribly S bright, with a fine, wry sense of humor. There's very little she can"t do, when she puts : her mind to it and works at :::: it." Mrs. Katahn emphasizes "a good grounding in all periods of music." but says x that when students are as young as Nina it's pretty $ much a matter of trial and error. "I like to let them pick the pieces they like, that they S respond to emotionally. That gets them over the hump." THE SUNDAY park concert, funded by the Nashville Symphony Guild, with additional grants from the Metro Board of Parks and Recreation and the National Endowment for the Arts, will begin at 6 p.m. (Postpone to ; Monday . June 24, same hour, : in case of rain.) : Baritone soloist for the : Gershwin concert will be ; William Lathon, a music j graduate of Tennessee State : and now assistant to the; Dean in the School of Music, University of Louisville. : Diane Marjorie Bolden will : lx soprano soloist: Minns Christian, conductor and ; musical director of the : Evansville Philharmonic or- j chestra since 19."3. will lc guest conductor. With a program that in- ' eludes Summertime, A Ho man is a Sometime Thing, and other tunes from 1'orgyaihl Ress, in addition to the music from Ai Ameri can in liris. and the pre sence of the Nashville Symphony Chorus under the direction of Scott Wit brow, it will Ih a remarkably enjoyable "Family Outing" inthe summer park series. Family Loves One Anofher-To Death! By Erma Bombeck An unmarried visitor to our home the other week surveyed our domesticsccne and said, "How lucky you are to have such a loving family." I gave her my Olivia Walton smile and said, "We mil moment, a door slammed hard enough to jar the p$ifo and a voice shouted. "You little thief. You brine back my belt or I'm calling the police!" "What was that?" asked the visitor. "Just our family. . .loving one another to death." What our friend did not realize is that children from the ages of 2 to 22 haw justice attack. . .a 20-year ixriod of u hat 's mine-is-minc-and-what 's-yours-is-yours-unless I-horrow-it and-thcn tough it-out. A tvpical dav in a loving family might sound like this:' "Okay, take !em off right now. Those are my pants and you should have thought of that before you wore them to school." "I told you if you stole one more of my records I'd break your face and I meant it." "All right, who's the turkey who found where I hid my shampoo'7 If you want protein in that mop of hair, buy it yourself. " "Someone's been in my closet. I know because I set hangers in a trap and it's sprung." "Where's my piece of chicken left over from supper? 3 m But for Nina Kennedy it will lo a grandlv memorable birthday party, falling as it does just one week before her 14th birthday,. . i-: ., I hid it right behind the olives and now it's gone. Let me smell your breath." "I know someone has been at my typewriter because the margins are all screwed up. I'could take fingerprints, you know." "That quarter that fell out of the dryer is mine Does it have an eagle on the front and the first two numbers in the date are .'' Then that settles it." "I'm sick to death of this family stealing from me. From hereon in. I'm going to put a camera focused on my records." "You sweat in my sweater and you're going to buv me a new one." My isitor turned ashen ami said. "lie is kithling lie won't really call the police, will he?" "Are you serious'.'" I giggled. "These are just family quarrels brought on by a group of people w ho compete everyday u it hone a not her for fond, clothing, privacy, parents, time and love. . .Besides, the last time he called the police on his brother, there were recriminations."
