AMERICAN ARTISTS LAUDED.
Madame Schumann Heink. the dis

in an interview in New York City with
a scneme to make San Diego, CaL. the
home of an American National school
of music, an American Bayreuth. Her
Bummer home is in the suburbs of 6an
Diego and she is much interested in the
welfare of that city. She is one of
tne principal promoters of the Ban

21. Several other wealthy residents of
San Diego have given large donations
in support oi tne festival.

prosper the muslo talents of the peo

Schumann Helnk in her New York In

tne young artists here are forced to
go abroad- This country In 1u tm.
ing with talent and what becomes of
an tnese peopleT Why, German and
Italian opera-houses are Just filled
"They are forced to go away to earn
their spurs before we will listen to
them here. . I. want them to have their
opportunity here and it is with this end
in view that we are planning to make
this school. ' It shall be a free school
and there will be oreratlc festivals
every year. In that way we shall train
our young artists.
"This year at our music festival we
have tried to get all the Americans we
can, but as yet they are not sufficient,
so artists from the Metropolitan will
take part as well.
"Madame Brenske, Paul Althouse and
Mabel Rlegelmann, all Americans, will
sing, but the chief roles will be taken
by Mesdames Oadski, who Is so inter
ested in our success that she is not
only going to sing Brunhilde's and her
other famous ro-les. but is alun rnin
to be the sandman and dewrman in

not only as the singer, but as also the

"Antony Hoff will conduct the per
formances and at the conclusion of the
festival he will be the resident con

he will go to San Oiego in April and he
will begin to drill the music talent In

"The members of the Metropolitan
will be the mainstay of our orchestra
and chorus, but we must begin to train
our Americans immediately, for, later
on. you must remember, the whole per

artists. What a happy day that will
be and with what feelings of pride and
Joy we will listen to that perform.

SYMPHONY IS NEXT SUNDAY.
The programme for the fifth con
cert this season of the Portland Sym
phony Orchestra, at the Eleventh-Stree
Theater, next Sunday afternoon. Feb
ruary 25. is weli calculated to please
every music lover, regardless of - the
extent of his musical training.
The symphony chosen is Goldmark's
"Rustic Wedding," in five movements,
each descriptive of some episode In a
Oerman countryside wedding. The first
in the "Wedding March." consisting
of a rollicking. Joyous theme and sev
eral variations. Then come the "Bride
Song," "Serenade," "Garden Scene," and
"Dance." This work is eminently char
acteristic of Goldmark's fertility of
musical resource, and his remarkable
industry In other matters ot creating
strikingly beautiful themes. The har
monious coloring of the work is also
The second number is the Justly
famous "Rienzi" overture, by Wagner.
With Its tremendous orchestration and
majestic tonal effects, it forms a strik
ing contrast to the Goldmark work,
which Is about to receive its first per
formance in Portland.
The next selection is "The Wand of
Youth," with the sub-title. "Music to a
Child's Play." Edward - Elgar, easily
England's greatest present-day com
poser, is its creator. This work is also
new to Portland. The first movement
is a march, calculated to rouse all. Then
comes "The Bells," full of delicate, will-o'-the-wisp
effects. The other move
ments, -entitled "The Tame Bear" and
"The Wild Bears," are serious con
trasts. The suite is a remarkable
tribute to Mr. Elgar's versatility and
familiarity with the resources of the
modern symphony orchestra.
Two shorter numbers r-.re Massenet's
"Under the Leaves," and Boustet's
"Dream After the BalL" The Massenet
number, from the "Alsatian Scenes." is
an evening scene, with a charming'
duet for cello and clarinet. The other
is a pizzicato number, in lighter vein.
Franz Liszt's beautiful "Les Pre
ludes Symphony Poems," No. 3, has
been chosen for the closing number.
