Huntsville Music Study Club
The Huntsville Music Study Club had a splendid program yesterday afternoon at the beautiful home of Miss Marguerite Cartwright.
The meeting was called to order by the president, Mrs. Ware and the secretary Miss Johnnie Kelley read the minutes of the last meeting.
Mrs. W. I. Thompson had two letters of congratulations, one from Mrs. Hundley, state federation president, and the other from Mrs. Hefflefinger, both expressing their interest in this movement and offering their aid
Miss Bessie Pettus brought the club greetings from Miss Elizabeth Price of Nashville and her kindly offer to help. The president voiced the sentiment of eh Club in an expression of thanks to those people who are taking an interest in it and told of Mr. Edwin Hall’s generous offer of a piano free of charge. This infant Club should thrive, for where can one find an organization which has received more favorable notice or more generous help?
The program for the day began with a violin solo—Salute d’Amour—Edgar played by that enjoyable musician Miss Mary Scott Moore, whose smoothness of technic, breadth of tone and interpretation is more mature than is usual for one of her years.
Miss Johnnie Kelly gave a number of interesting musical news items. This feature is a part of every program so that the members may get in touch with musical conditions.
Miss Beverly Wheatcroft, a deservedly popular pianist, followed this by Moskowski’s Serenata.
Mrs. Fred Howe gave a pleasing paper on—Leopold Auer – Master Violinist. Much of her information was personally gained from her niece who has been a pupil of Auer for two summer seasons.
Mrs. Walter Byrne, who had charge of the program, the practically turned the meeting over to Miss Bessie Jones of Dallas, Texas, who was the honor guest of the occasion. Miss Jones has been spending the summer studying with the master pianist Lehvinne at Chicago, reaching here Monday night; and made the trip from New Market yesterday in order to meet with the Club and bring to it some of the inspiration of her summer’s work.
In a very modest but fascinating way, Miss Jones gave an intimate account of her work with the master, and followed this by playing two numbers; Rhapsody in E flat by Brahms, Prelude in G minor of Rachmaninoff.
Her clearness of tone, delicacy of nuance and phrasing, made one forget technic, and hear only the thought of the composer. An ideal for which may strive, but few attain. After this Miss Jones gave an account of the club work in Dallas, Texas, and answered many questions concerning same. Needless to say, the meeting adjourned with regret, but its inspirational uplift will not soon be forgotten. .
