With the performance of Miss* Claramae Turner, Metropolitian Opera contralto, the cur Lain went down on the jwcond concert season to be sponsored here by the BIy- theville Civic Music Association, Miss Turner, displaying charm and vitality along vocalism and admirable acting ability, gave, In the opinion of many, the outstanding performance ot 'the entire season last night at the American Legion Memorial Auditorium. The artist, whose moods the au- dlence_ found contagious, opened her performance in the exuberant mood of "Alleluia" and changed to the wistful miulc of Josef Haydn and "She Never Told Her Love" and the flippant "What Can We Poor Ferrules D3?" by Henry Purcell. Perhaps the best received by the BIytheville audience were the two arias presented by Miss Turner and the familiar Brahma Lullaby. The first aria was from "Don Carlo" by Verdi, ."O Don Fatale"; and the final aria was from "The Medium." Program notes pointed out that Miss Turner had been chosen by the composer, Qian-Carlo Me- nottl, to create the title role Madame Flora in the premier performance of "The Medium." 1 The artist returned to the stage for five encore numbers and man: curtain calls from the enthusiast!' concert-goers, and following th concert scores were back stage seek Ing autographs and conaratulatin the artist. Included among the en cores was a selection from "Car men" and "Love, Tis My Hear Alone." At the outset of the concert, Ml? Turner, In Introducing her qccom panist, Miss Dorothy Zeigler, ex plained that she had received rec ommendations on the accompani? saying she was with the St. Lou Symphony. Upon meeting Mis. Zeigler she learned her position with the symphony, however, was as first trombonist rather than the piano. Her skill, lauded by Mi?s Turner, was apparent during the concert. Miss Turner's debut was with the San Francisco Opera Association. and in 1946 she Joined the Metropolitan Opera Company, making her debut In Fa\ist with an inspired performance that, according to present, day critics, has never once let down. Her dramatic characterizations captured the audience, as well as a beautiful voice with tremendous force and range- After the concert, Miss Turner and the accompanist were honored with a reception at the R.
