Miss Susie Summer Charms a Char
The following notice of a musical
a recital in wlhich a Newberry girl won
degree is taken from the Charlotte
Observer, of Saturday last. Miss
Summer is t1he daughter of Mr. C. E.
Summer of our city and is a talented
and an accomplished musician:
At the Presbyterian College last
niight. Miss Susie Edna Summer de
lighted a large audience, assembled to
hear her organ recital. A short but
well selected programme brought out
the varied tones of the organ and
showed the young artist's mastery of
the great instrument. The classic
dignity of Bach's St. Ann's Fugue
was a delightful prelude to a charm
ing entertainment. Next on the pro
gramme was "Berceuse," by Brahms. 1
latest and most involved of all classic
writers who showed in this dainty lit
tle conception, the simplicity that
comes from true genius alone. Miss
Summer so caught the spirit of the
composer that one could almost see
the cradle swing to the low, sweet
notes that babies love.
By organists of higi aspiration
Mendelssohn's organ sonata No. 2 IS
one of the best beloved. The organ
ist of the evening ably executed this
masterpiece and showed to advantage
the numerous and contracted tonal
capabilities of 'the concert organ.
For playing imitation, Jadassohn's
"Canon Scherzo" is in the highest
sense original and was so well render
ed as to make the audience partici
pate in tihe joy of the writer.
The brilliantly full Postlude of
Stern most advantageously introduc
ed Scott & Clark's ever welcome
-Chorus of Angels." which was most
daintily played by the recitalist and
-,as the most taking selection on the
programme. The last number. Han
del's celebrated B flat Concerto for
organ and small orchestra, brought
out the contrast between orchestra
and organ with dialogue effect. and
losed with full chorus. This diffi
cult and grand concert made a fitting
inale to an enjoyable and artistic re
This recital entitled the yor.ng lady
to the degree of associate in organ
playing in Victoria College of Music
in London. for which she was a candi
ddate two years ago. She took the
same degree for pianoforte playing.
\Ve congratulate her upon her success.
