Variety of Music Given in Concert Children Entertained at Last of Series of Programs. Twelve Russian men and women clad in brillian scarlet: and blue costumes held the Interest of an auditorium full of children for an hour Monday afternoon at the last of the series of children's concerts sponsored by .the Grade Teachers association. They sang church music, comic songs and bits from operas,-- not a word of it in English-- but all so well sung that their hearers listened attentively and appreciatively. Miss Mildred Jackson .' announced the program and explained the numbers. . - Singing, Excellent. The skillful blending of the voices, the well divided harmony of the singers and the fine nuances of their renditions made the program a delight for the -audience. The first number, "Tantum Ergo," by Gluck'was beautifully, done. It is' church music as were the next three numbers, ''To Thee We Sing," "Notre Dame" : and "Lord Have Mercy." The last number demonstrated the amazing control which the singers have over their v voices. It consists of the repitition. or the words "Lord have mercy" 49 times as it is sung in the Russian Easter service. ^ It begins quite, loud and diminishes to a whisper -- then rises gradually to a glorious climax. "Wedding Bells of 'Novgorod" and "Christmas Chimes" from the opera, "Christmas Eve" were interesting arrangements of melody against a background of bell-like sounds. The work of the -basses in these numbers was especially attractive. "The Volga Boatman," arranged by Kibalchich, was given an effective rendition and was enthusiastically received by the audience. Equally well received was "Vanka Tanka," a comic song, arranged by Kibalchich which told of the love affair between a boy named Vanka and a girl named Tanka. The "Song of the Reapers" from the opera, "Eugene Onegin" by Tschaikowsky and a "Moscow Street Song" were well received. The closing numbers were -.
