MUSICAL!: AT CHRISTIAN CHI RCU then after they have heard the best a

Wednesday evening, missed "some,
Mr. and Mrs. Levinne, are two quite
clever musicians who give an informal
and varied evening's entertainment.
One feature is the talk to the audience
quite familiarly and personally (not
to say intimately) about the composi
tion to be rendered ,and about personal
experiences relating to it. While thh
can easily be carried so far as to re
pel the staid and sturdy mind of the
average listener, nevertheless we feel
tha It was a step In the right direction.
Music has too long been a snobbish,
highbrow sort of thing, rather than
the universal everyday language of the
everyday emotions Let us hope for the
time when to whistle or sing at our
work or on the street, or In our social
or business gatherings will be consid
ered quite the isroper thing. And let
us realize that underlying all of the
masterpieces is a little Idea or emotion
that Is common to us all.
HIGH SCHOOL MCSICALE.
The music department of the hiEh
school Is planning a mixed program to
be given at the High school auditori
um, Tuesday evening, February 10th.
This will include numbers by the band,
orchestra and chorus .together with
soloa by several talented high school
pupils. By wny of diversion a few
special features wll Ibe introduced.
This is the first concert of the school
year, and an effort will be made to
have it meet your approval, so that we
may merit your interest in future pro
grama We hope to develop our bands,
orchestras and glee clubs sufficiently
that they may function not only In the
lives of the lndlvlduul members, but
In the sooitil life of the high school
and of the city. Education for service
Is the sort that everybody is talking
about nowadays. We hope to do our
bit toward helping the oncoming gen
eration to get a little more enjoyment
out of life, by helping them to tnuo
their voices and instruments not only
for themaelveB but for others.
