Children to Hear Music by Russians Third Concert of Series to Be Held March 9 at School. At the third and last of the erles of concerts sponsored by the Jrade Teachers association for the Mason City school children in the ligh school auditorium at 3 o'clock Jarch 9 a group of Russian singers will perform. The singers who have been trained by Kibalchick will appear in colorful costumes which reflect a combination of the dress of the old Russian nobility and the colorful- nesa of the peasants of the Ukraine The New York World says of them 'It is a brilliant thing of cherubic lymns and golden crowns and blue and scarlet costumes, 'for this decorative group Is as cheerful to look at as it is to listen to." Choral Singing Early. Choral singing is the earliest musical expression of the human race and it is only natural to assume that soon after people began to gather in groups they learned to join in making music, vocal first but soon after adding instrumental Vocal music was lound to be bes! suited to the expression of deep religious feelings so the church choirs were started. Most of the early music was written for four voices There developed Italian and German schools of choral singing and the first sign of departure from these schools came from gypsies from southern Russia who had developed new forms of singing and so choral work developed to the stage where each voice is given the same value as an' instrument in a symphony orchestra. Symphonic Arrangement. . The Russian singers will give symphonic arrangements of Russian church music, standard classics and folk songs. During their singing the three sopranos and two contraltos are seated and the three tenors and our basses stand behind. No country produces such bass singers as Russia. Whether it is the effect of the severe climate or the strong physique of the peasantry it s generally acknowledged that th most sonorous arid .richest bass voices come from Russia. A Russian )ass singer unless he is in perfec control can drown out a whole rer; ment of sopranos. --:·-- Pastor of Hampton Church of Christ Weds at Des Moines HAMPTON, Feb. 21.--The Rev C. S.
