This extract on Stokowski is w'ritten
by Gilbert Vivian Seldes in a recent
number of the Boston Transcript:
Leopold Stokowski was born Leopold An
ton Stanlslav Stokowski in London, April
18, just 34 years ago. His father,
Josef Boleslaw Kopernicus Stokowski. as a
young man. had come to London (England
atier a political rebellion in which his own
father was implicated. While another part
of the family went toward the Golden
Horn, this branch was making its way to
France. A disaster at seA, the presence of
a British fleet-unit, and the opportunity of
taking on a profitable trade in England,
changed Josefs course and brought to his
son an Irish mother. Like the hero of a
very modern song, Mr. Stokowski confesses
that, as a child, he went wild when the
band played. Ut also loved a piano, which,
with a violin, were his first -instruments.
A true prodigy with them, he played, when
10 years old. the violin, the viola and the
tuba in orchestra. His childhood was spent
in and near London; he is town
in all his aptitudes. At 14, he won a prize
for the best choral piece to be performed.
on a state occasion, with a chorus of 400
voices at St. Paul's. He took highest hon
ors at the Royal College of Organists in
London, studied composition under titan
ford. Parry, Elgar and others and Instrumen
tation in Paris. Ills first position was as or
ganist and choirmaster at St. James,
Piccadilly. His passion for choral mulc,
which has surprised and annoyed his .de
votees, dates easily back to this time.
We are Informed, beyond question, that
It was with a solid foundation laid, and
with l email repute as a conductor, that
Mr. Stokowski came to the crisis of his
career. He had before him the estab
lished course of English conductors, the ar
duous labors, the difficulties which have
nothing to do with music He was of
fered the post of organist and choirmas
ter at H. Bartholomew's, in New York. He
was certainly as precocious in his ambitions
as in his talents; he wanted much to con
duct, very little to continue his church
work. But the prospect of what lay be
yond the years as choirmaster won him
over. He came to St Bartholomew's and
stayed three years. It may be noted. In
view of Mr Stokowskl's tendency to do
things on the largest scale, that the post
he took was the highest paid In the United
States et the time. If he Is to be tltan
esque it is not all his own fault. The years
at St. Bartholomew's allowed Mr. Stokowski
to conduct outside Its precincts. Brahms'
Kequiem and Bach's (Matthew) Passion
Stokowski passed one year In study and as
gu.st conductor abroad.
Mr. Stokowski is and has been for many
years, adored of women. He is handsome,
not pretty at all. striking and wonderfully
graceful. Tall, still thin, and beautifully
blonde, his apuearance on the concert stage
Is romantic, dazzling, exciting. Seen from
the pit the defects of his face are not to
be noticed. The eyes are deep, the fore
head high, the nose large and oddly shaped,
but fine. More closely seen his lips are
disturbing, for they are Irregular, indeci
sive. But distinction and grace are always
his. and he is both generous spirited and
affable. He has youth and the poise of
m-atly won repute, and he has definitely
set out to work, for all It is worth, 'the In
fluence of womankind In the musical circle
he deliwhts. His programmes are not
matinee affairs. He has plied on Schonberg
and Skriabtn and Rabaud and Sibelius when
h might have been playing Mendelssohn
and HayJn. But his devotees have been
ftithful. They have banded together In
organizations for the furtherance of the or
cheetra. They are probably more effective
than the men whose names are on the
board of directors. They are worshipers
and love to see him after the concert.
MACDOWELL CLUB, TUESDAY.

The first concert of the 1916-17 sea
son of the Apollo Club, male chorus,
takes place Tuesday night. November
28. and will be one of the important
musical events of the year.

assisting soloist, has rapidly risen to a
place with the best concert and recital
artists that this country has produced.
He sang with the big Exposition or
chestra in isan Francisco a year ago
and at that time called forth the warm
est praise from big audiences. He haa
a commanding, and impressive stage
presence and a magnetism and charm
that are irresistible. His numbers wiM
include several of the best recent songs
with English text, one operatic aria and
a group of classic numbers. He will
also sing the beautiful incidental solo
in the Foote cantata "The Farewell of
Hiawatha. This last number was sung
by the Apollo Club at Its second concert
in 1909. and will be remembered by
many of the earlier associate members.

this will be one of the most successful

bership, the club has never been on
more satisfactory basis. The full quota

occur. Applications for associate mem
bership should be handed to active

amazing versatility. He has sung lead
ing roles In musical comedies in Lon
don and other capitals of Europe, and
has taken principal roles In grand
opera both in England and Australia.
In America he has been a big success
in professional music work. Mr. Elli
son will present the same programme
of modern music that has crested so
much interest in a number of Eastern
cities, and which Is said to be decidedly
unique, because Mr. Ellison accom
plishes something which is entirely new

himself. His recital is under the di

House. Complimentary tickets can be

man has been following Ethel Legin

The concert given" at McMlnnvllle
November 2 with J. William Belcher,
tenor, of this city, as assistant soloist,
was a great success. Mr. Belcher was
the recipient of many flattering com
pliments on his fine singing and had
to respond to several enthusiastic re
calls. Arthur Middleton. the New York Met
ropolitan Opera Company basso, be
lieves that "those who lay weJIT also
work well.' Mr. Middleton believes also
in living up to his belief, for he is a
patient, wary hunter, a skillful fish
erman and a strong swimmer. The
only outdoor attraction that will take
him away from a football match is
baseball. But he Is "one of us" to such
an extent that after the most strenuous
day in the open air he has often been
discovered sneaking off to the "mo
vies." Francis S. Weir, tenor, who was pre
sented In recital last Spring by J. Will

musical engagement this week.

The sacred concert last Sunday night
at Sunnyslde Methodist Episcopal
Church sung by the vested choir of
about 100 voices under the direction
of Jasper Dean Mac Fa II was quite a
musical event of Importance, and the
treat given was as pronounced as if
one had paid money for admission.
Each singer, adult and Juvenile, wore
a white surplice and dark cassock, so
that all were dressed alike, rich and
otherwise. It was an Impressive les
son In American democracy. The voices
of the adult singers In the choir blend
finely, and the voices of the children
ring with Bweetness and clarity. This
choir Is easily one of the principal of
the Pacific Coast. Other choirs may
have singers In them who are more
eminent and better known musicians,
but none more enthusiastic and musl
clanly. Vocal effects in delicate shad

much pleasure. Mr. MacFall Is a capa
