Many of them they recognized on announcement, others after the first few measures had been played and all of them, familiar or unfamiliar, were pleasing, i ': , Children as Hearers. ·' L Children at a concert are entire- , ly di""!,nt from grown-ups. Par- ,A ents -m take their children to * cone--3, so they have not learned to imitate the manner in which the adult receives music. They tap their feet- to mark the beat, they swing their caps in the aisle to the rhythmic time of the music and if they are bored they take no pains to conceal it. There was not much' boredom during the Sittig concert. From the opening strains of the spirited "Marche Militaire" by Schubert which caught the attention of the children to the closing "Way Down Upon the Suwannee River" the selections were designed to interest the children. Well Received. I The trio played "Minuet" by Beethoven and the "Gypsy Rondo" by j 1 Haydn in addition to "March Mill- \ taire" in their group. They were \ ably performed and well received. .\1 Edgar Sittig, cellist, played a $ number of selections accompanied j by his father. He explained that |, his instrument had been made in "-·'. Italy in 1728 and that altho it had been in use ver since it was in per- ' feet condition. His numbers "Drink To Me Only With Thine Eyes" and ! "Tarantelle" by Squire were inter- ''· esting for the flexibility and charm J of his performance. ' Violinist Plays. The trio played "Salut d'Amour" by Sir Edward Elgar, "Slumber Song" by Faubert and "Serenade" by Victor Herbert. Misr T Sit played "The Old-Refrain" by-^tre.;,- ler, "The Swan" by Saint Saeris and "Spanish Dance." Her interpretations were particularly pleasing and the dexterity and sureness of her playing unusually good. The closing numbers played by the trio included "By the Brook" and "Way Down Upon the Suwannee River," The sparkling runs of the first? and the familiar swing of the last pleased the juvenile listeners and ended the program on the same interesting plane on which it had started.
