FORTRESS j: vvvvwvviiiv^^ of Algonn auditorium Sunday afternoon with Polonaise Militaire by Chopin. The orchestra also played Andante Cantablle by Tschatkowsky and Hungarian Dance No. 5 by Brahms. Of the three numbers the sweetness of Andante Cantabile was best executed by the group whle the Hungarian Dance set out a clear abll- "ty for good execution on the part of the musicians. The ensemble, performed nicely under the direction of O. F. Spalding, Instrumental instructor. Eg-hth Graders Sing iA sextette composed of eighth grade girls, Ann Stillman, Mariorie Dewel, Mary Lou Sandberg, Shirley Helberg, Arids Wallburg and 'Joan Pletch, rendered four delightful numbers, "The Pearl, 1 "Three Blind Mice," "V^hen Johnny Comes Marching Home,' and "Winter Wonderland," and demonstrated a tuneful and harmonious voice blend, though they sang without direction. Some excellent voice talent is developing in that group. Girls' Glee Club Singing "Tea For Two" by Youmans and "Summer Time" by Gershwin, the girls' glee club proved very .musical with perhaps the best harmony distinctiveness in "Tea 'For Two," Their expression and response to direction was very fine. Mrs. S. H. Southwick, vocal director, led the group Male Quartet Best From a musical standpoint, harmony, voice and expression, the the male quartet was the outstanding group of the concert. Made up of Roger Slagle, Lyle Steven, Wilbert Ruhnke and Dick Dale, the tx>ys sarrg four numbers. One of them, "It's Me." Negro spiritual, was almost perfect in rendition and proved the ability of the boys There is every reason to feel that could they remain together they have a future as a male quartet. The Cadet Band Three numbers were presented by the cadet band under the direction of Mr. Spalding, Marine Hymn, Anchors Awelgh and Pop Goes the Weasel, the latter a 'tra- citional num'ber. This group very ably displayed good talent. Following this a saxophone number, "Saxophabiar by Wiedoft, • was played by Kenneth Brown. That young man shows great possibilities. Throughout his every tone distinct and clear, and were his slurs well was even, especially handled. Mixed Chorus Directed by Mrs. Southwick, the mixed chorus sang three numbers, Liebestraum by Liszt, Mardi Gras by Ferde Grofe, and Stardust by Carmichael. The tuneful sweetness of Liebestraum was perhaps the better rendered of the three numbers, though Stardust, with its desert tang in harmony showed good quality. In this number Georgia Scribner was the soloVjt and she has a sweet and appealing voice which fit nicely into the ensemble. Madrigal Group ISome excellent voices are found in the madrigal group and under direction of Mrs. Southwick two numbers were presented "I See Your Face Before Me" and "Strike Up the Band'" the latter by Gereh- win. The group sang the first number in the most musical effort. The Concert Band Playing five numbers the concert band did itself proud in the concert. Under direction of Mr. Spalding the best rendition musically and from a sweet melodious standpoint was the first number, "The World Is Waiting -For the Sunrise." "From Africa to Harlem," by Bennett, set out the ability of the group in tempos, expression variation of and " group my Weather" lighting effects were pats within the band. In "Stor- used which added to the effectiveness of this popular number, well rendered. "Stars and Stripes Forever," by Sousa, closed the program. In the finale of this number the piccolo, four trombones and four trumpets were featured, bringing to a thrilling close a very fine and interesting program. Algona high may well feel proud of the plentiful and better talent in its vocal and instrumental groups. Meredith Raney and "Barbara Scobee played fliano accompaniments to the different group and solo numbers.
