Billed as "the only all-girl orchestra of its kind in the world," the young women practiced orchestral effects for seven months in a piano warehouse. They kicked iu 65 cents at each rehearsal to make the organization stand on its own fiscal feet. * * * Then they emerged for their first public appearance, nicking a near capacity crowd of 2,200 for $2.10 top, and for two hours tried on their pianos the same things accomplished by Kousse- vitslty, Kostelanetz and Stokowski. The patrons went wild. Tho 12 pianos hummed with the applause, whistles as well as handclaps. The public thought it was different with a capital "D,'' and liked it. Judging from early reviews, veteran music critics thought it was just different. * * * "Sure bowled 'em over, didn't we?" exulted, the ex-model, who conducts the orchestra. Svelte and looking less than her 30 years, she is known on the programs as Antoinette Rich and on government questionnaires as Ruth Schreiber. While an actress and photographers' model in Philadelphia for three 3-ears, Miss Rich organized and presented the Philadelphia piano symphony, comprising 22 girl: and 12 pianos. The purpose of the. piano symphony, she said, is "tc create a symphonic effect through skilfully designed arrangements." * * * Monday night nine stenographers, nine piano teachers anc one 17 year old concert pianisi tried to realize that purpose in 'works varying from Tschaikow- sky's "Concerto for Pianoforte. No. 1. B Flat Minor. Opus 23," to Peter DeRose's "Deep Purple" of juke box fame. The arrangements were by the versatile maestro, female version, and the conducting, best symphony style, convinced even the critics. Miss Rich also arranged the stage effects with the pianos tiered in a bleacher effect, the performers in sparkling white gowns with their backs to the audience, colored footlights -against a- black; background and probably' the world's highest podium. ''We're going to have two more appearances this season," Miss Rich said. "I think we're going over." TWENTIETH CENTURY CLUB ENTERTAINED Twentieth Century club met Monday afternoon at the Bovaird tearoom with Miss Laura Kern as hostess and the program included current events by Mrs. George Willis Hill and a review bv Jlrs.
