ccietif MISS JOSEPHINE REAY Society Editor Stimulating Program Presented By New York Woodwind Quintet Climaxing their stay in Redlands yesterday where they afforded a rare opportunity for students of woodwind instruments by conducting clinic sessions at the University of Redlands, the New York Woodwind Quintet presented a concert in Watchorn hall last night. An interested audience, many of whom had been impressed by the Quintet's concert here two years ago. filled the hall for the program which was the fourth in the current Chamber Music series. The well remembered finesse of the group's ensemble work and the individual capabilities of eachjfor performer combined to provide two hours of complete musical enjoyment. Members of the group are Samuel Baron flute: David Glazer clarinet: John Barrows horn: Jer Next was a Quinlent written in' 1955 for the New York Woodwind players by Alvui Etler who, it was explained, is head of the corn-] position department at Smith college and ' a former oboe player. From the opening thematic pattern expressed by the bassoon and horn, through the rapid, exciting last movement, it was compelling music imbued with subtle humor.' Rossini's Quartet in B Flat Ma jor for flute, clarinet, bassoon and horn seemed tame in company with its highly colored compan ions on the program. Darius Milhaud's stunning Suite Woodwind Quintet, "La Cheminee du Roi Rene" was gracefully performed by the ensemble who perfected every nuance in the most appealing score. Dramatic in its modernity was ome Roth oboe and Arthur Weis-,the final Concerto for Wind Quintet, written only last year by William Bergsma of the Julliard School of Music composition facul- berg. bassoon. Music selected for the Redlands performance was either new or seldom heard, and all of it wasty stimulating. | As an encore, the group played First was a Quintet in G mi- a Scherzo for Quintet by Alec nor by the German composer Wilder who has written works es- Franz Daazi 11763 - 1826'. a'• pecially for the distinguished play- straightforward, graceful and in- 1 ers of the evening, strumentally balanced four move-!

By JOSEPHINE REAY Today's the day for the wearing of the green — that's for sure. In case we'd forgotten a certain reminder was in Israel Myers' early visit to the Facts office with the big mound of pansies he brings on each St. Patrick's Day in memory of Redlands' "patron- saints", the Smiley brothers. (It's their birthday.) "Izzy" undertakes the back-breaking job of picking these low-lying little flowers each year in the gardens around Smiley library. It isn't everyone who can get to Ireland and brag ever after of kissing the Blarney Stone. So what did Genevieve and John Mtley, and Evelyn and Gam Hay cock do but provide a reasonable facsimile for their all-Irish par ty Saturday night at the Country Club. Invitations in the shape of shamrocks indicated the theme which was carried out in great style. First there was the spotlighted sign notifying guests of the presence of the great Blarney Stone inside. Then there were huge outlines of shamrocks, imposing looking shillelaghs and picturesque Irish hats for wall arrangements. Irish harps, too, were prevalent and the beautiful buffet table with its green and white floral centerpiece was dominated by a handsome golden Irish harp. On one table, the decoration was a bowl of Irish potatoes with a good old clay pipe resting comfortably on top. And there was even a little flower pot -with real shamrocks growing! With all that atmosphere •— plus good music for dancing — who could fail to have fun? An unexpected fashion note was added by Genevieve's sister. Rita (Mrs. Lyle) Gray who with her doctor husband came up from Long Beach for the party. Rita's dress, in a stunning shade of red. looked as thqugh it was designed with an intricately cut loose flowing panel in back, so popular these days. But, with a twist of her wrists she could flip the panel in such a way that it forme'd its own cape-like wrap, three-quarter length and even finished with ; collar! Once this was discovered, Rita had to spend much of the evening modeling good-naturedly at intervals. With Jan and Art Bugbee were their houseguests, Mary and Jim Pearson whoi used to be their neighbors in Birmingham, Michigan. Mary and Jim are escaping from Michigan's snow and ice for a winter vacation which began with a visit to the Arizona desert near Scottsdale and their wonderful tans prove they've been enjoying the outdoor living. They're crazy about Redlands weather, sr everyone is just nonchalantly pretending that it's just like this every March! Two little charmers who are making their Redlands debuts this week are only four months old. They are Susan and Carolyn Patridge, twin daughters of Maria | i Smith I and John Patridge who live in San Francisco. Maria brought her little girls down by plane for a short stay with her parents. Mary and Dan Smith, and it promises to be a busy few days. Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra admirers will have a chance to hear the orchestra's Palm Springs concert if they hurry.
