2 The Newt-Review, Roseburg, Ore. Wed., May 18, 1949
By LEROY INMAN
The results of sincere effort
and conscientious training
throughout the winter months
were clearly evidenced by the
Roseburg Choral Society's presen
tation Tuesday night of its first
annual soring concert.
Ably directed by Charles A.
Ricketts, the music was well ar
ranged, and the program went off
smoothly. The group numbers
were especially well delivered,
and novelty numbers at the close
of the program won he acclaim
of the large audience.
Especially commendame were
the solo parts, sung by Dorcas
Johnson and Hershel Scott, and
Margaret Jane Plimpton's piano
Mrs. Johnson exhibited wide
range and an unusually clear,
pleasing voice quality in her three
selections, "On Wings of Song,"
Mendelssohn; "Kashmiri Love
Song," Woodforde Finden, and
"My Hero," Strauss. Her final
selection was particularly well re
ceived, and ;ne audience called
her back for a repeat perform
ance. Mrs. Flimnton received the aud
ience's applause likewise in her
piano presentation ot men s par
tita in B-Flat," and Debussy's
"Deux Arabesque." She was also
called back for an encore. In ap
preciation of her work as ac
companist and faithful attendance
at rehearsals. Mrs. Plimpton was
presented with a large bouquet
Hershel Scott gave pleasing
renditions of "One Little Hour,"
Dichmont; "Dawn," and "Life,
both by Curran.
The society as a group showed
excellent timing and harmony in
its several selections. Although
the earlier part of the program
consisted of more serious type
music, the concluding selections
of spirituals and a novelty num
ber were lively and highly enter
taining. -The novelty number, Murray's
arrangement of "Mary Had a Lit
tle Lamb," was given with a
touch of timely liumor, when
James R. Daugherty added a
plaintive "Baa" at the conclusion.
Following the evening's per
formance, members of the So
ciety and their husbands or
wives adjourned to Carl's Haven
for an evening supper and a fi
nal social get-together. Several
members of the group put on
special performances, and, It was
reported, some 'hidden talent'
was brought to light.
