[Charles City News | Schmidt Pleases Large Crowd; Ilza Niemack to Be Last of Soloists CHARLES CITY--Four different types of songs, English, French, German and Negro, were sung Thursday evening; in the high school auditorium by Reinhold Schmidt, operatic baritone, at the third of the Artists' Series presented by the Parent-Teacher council. The audience recalled the singer after each group but not until the end of the program did he provide an extra song which was "Home on the Range," one often requested on his radio programs, he stated. There was no time during the singing of the 15 songs that the audience was not in a most receptive mood and often the climaxes were so musically beautiful' that the audiences waited before breaking the spell with applause. Mr. Schmidt included one operatic aria, "Le Tambour Major" by Thomas, in which he showed full command of his art, but he could and did enter with enthusiasm into some of the more modern and lighter numbers. His clear articu- .ation was equal to his interpretation and the tone quality of his voice was used to great advantage. An unannounced accompanist who followed him with every shade of expression was more than a mere background for the program. Miss Ilza Niemack, noted Charles iity violinist who is now teaching n Ames, will give the concluding number on the series next month.
