Together, Seeger and Guthrie cover music from the American Revolution to the Civil War, as well as ragtime, folk, country and blues. For reservations contact the cultural affairs office. A warm By DAVID B.KOZINSKI The Delaware Symphony Orchestra under Van Lier Lanning presented a pleasant selection of music last night at the Longwood Gardens Open Air Theatre. Entitled a "Salute To Music." the concert included works from the romantic period and three lighter contemporary pieces Longwood is not accoustically equipped to adequately project an orchestral concert, and the results must be judged with this in mind. Amplification is minimal and there is no shell or back wall to reflect the music. The members of the orchestra had to adjust for dynamics, ensemble and intonation. That considered, things went remarkably well. Weber's Overture to "Oberon" opened the evening nicely. A peppy account of Copland's "Hoe-Down" from "Rodeo" came next, with strong ambience. A work by a local composer, Karl A. Forssmark, who taught music in Pennsylvania and Delaware public schools, was his short "Nocturne" for string orchestra. The music exhudes a bittersweet, slightly brooding Scandanavian aura. The first half ended with a solid reading of a work not heard too often these days Liszt's tone poem "Les Prelude." After intermission came a neatly turned "Emperor" waltzes by Johnann Strauss the Younger. The highlight of the concert was the guest appearance by a native Wilmingtonian, soprano Pauline Domanski, who is now based in New York. She has made her mark in opera and concert work in this country and in Europe, and is to appear in opera in Argentina with La Plata Opera. Three contrasting arias found her in top voice. She caught the psychology of the attractive Countess who is not getting any younger in "Dove Sono" from Mo- ' zart 8 Tne Marfage ?iJO&i"L" rr. RAYM047tWBKI IMG. MAT.

She repeated Dvorak's touching "Song to the Moon" from the opera "Rusalka," which she sang in Czecholslova-kian. Butterfly's chattering final parting from her child before the heroine commits hara-kiri was most music review Crystal Gayle : 'a shining lady' By BRUCE LAIRD Let's hear it for Crystal Gayle! Last night the lady did a one-night stand at the Grand Opera House, and deadline or no I stayed to the end. That's the type of performer she is. For warmers there was pianist-vocalist Bobby Arvon whose style is still developing, but whose talent as a composer is definitely promising. A former performer with the Harry James band, he strayed only once from his original material to do a jazzy scat rendition of Richard Rodgers' "Mountain Greenery," a novelty approach delivered with considerable skill. But his own compositions specifically "Bright Lights" an da lustily chorded "From Now On" are his special bag. On occasion his lyrics are slyly apropos, as in "Listen to My Music, Mr. Rock-and-Roll Man, Please" my particular favorite. If this budding performer slips at all, it is during his occasionally folksy biographical forays between numbers. Perhaps a little editing would help, for he needs scant advertising for so good a musical product. Miss Gayle that shining lady of the second part of the program can pretty well do as she pleases, for everything she does y- m the Open Air moving in "Tu, tu, tu? piccolo Iddio" from Puccini's "Madama Butterfly." Miss Domanski's warm, attractive soprano was projected easily and with fine control. The large audience received her with enthusiasm. Her encore, "Summertime" from Gershwin's "Porgy and Bess," soared and created a pleases. She's beautiful, she's personable, and she's firmly at the top of the heap. She also has an extremely good back-up group especially guitarist Biff Watson, who can stand stock-still and whip up a storm without taking the spotlight away from the star. It's a great show-biz feat, and he's consistently that kind of performer. Whoever is behind the arrangements for her numbers deserves a big hug from the lovely lady, for he makes each song eminently untenable. This is not to take away from Crystal Gayle herself, of course. It's doubtful that her repertoire would sound nearly as exciting delivered by someone else.

The concert ended with Hershey Kay's "The Stars and Stripes" ballet suite. Thanks to the Hadley Memorial Fund, last night's concert was offered free of charge. as a whole new song in her hands. By the time the concert was over I had pretty well narrowed down my favorites to four or five, or six, or seven. It would have been unthinkable had she not sung that sock-beat "Don't It Make Your Brown Eyes Blue" which won her a Grammy in 1978. It sounds even better in person. There was also a nifty oldie with as catchy a tune as you could want, and a special breathless quality as she launched into the lyrics: "Midnight one more night without sleepin' " which brought ecstatic applause. Then, in her best country-rock style, she introduced "When You Left the One You Left Me For" from her .new "When I Dream" album. F -ft, IPGI -an unmarried. wr man ft MULES J ' Via" i. .
