WASHINGTON’S EARLY SUMMER MUSICAL ACTIVITIES
A_______* - Imagination Is Necessary For Musician and Student Colors Attitude and Determines Standing of the Individual—Cannot Be Replaced by Scientific Formula in Composition. By Alice Ever swan. NAPOLEON once said that "imagination rules the world" and in no section of the vari ous elements that add to the beauty of the world is this so true as in music. The use of imagination in the working together of the details that eventually produce perfect music and the power of imagination in the approach to the details is what gives to music the touch of the supreme beauty that humanity senses but cannot define. The play of imagination is a mystic current that binds performer and listener together in an affinity that is uniquely the dower of music Whether one is a music lover, an artist or a student, the degree of imagination coloring the attitude toward music is what determines the standing of the individual. If one be but a unit in an auditory capacity, thp gain to himself will follow tHe amount of imagination brought to the listening to music. If one be an artist, the strength of this quality influences his rank in a celebrity list. In the wearisome study of technique, tne student who employs imagination in attacking the obstacles is the one with a future before him. There can bp no gain to the world if music is produced without imagination. Some would have it that music is a science that can he marie to submit to an intellectual desire or a scientific formula Time and again composers have tried to work at rnusie in this manner, but the result leans nowhere. Many times with the master com posers the wings of the imagination hat e drooped and refused to carry on the flight of inspiration, and in these moments the composer has had re course to his intellect and written intelligently and correctly after the rules of composition. But the measures evolved are barren of the glow and the appeal of the imaginative passages and form only a hiatus to be endured until the lamp of the imagination is lighted again. It is strangely true that one dare not abandon the use of the imagina tion at any time in the creation of music if profit is to be provided for himself or the listener. A technical passage loses all meaning no matter , how well executed if the idea is not there to give an impulse of another kind to its performance. If that evanescent, visionary quality is-pres ent, the aura of its meaning precedes the notes and registers in the mind of another. To interpret music the imag ination must bloom to full power if the picture, the idea or the sentiment is to detach itself from its musical form and reveal its true substance in a way to bring a reaction from the listener. And to listen to music with out the aid of the imagination is to miss all the deeper significance of the phrases and reap no recompense of Music Notes THE Lovette Choral Club held Its last meeting of the year at the Evangeline Hotel Monday night. The officers for next year j were elected and appointed as: Presi dent, Margaret C. Smith: vice presi dent, Frances Bass Wilson: recording secretary. Rosemond B. Hanson: cor responding secretary.

Etta Schmid Wells presented Marian Choisser in a piano recital Saturday, May 25, at the Eamu Club. the kind that only such an art can bestow. If one approach any problem with the assistance of the imagination, half of the solving is already accomplished. This marvelous faculty with which the human race is endowed is the basis of every progressive enterprise which has improved the conditions of the world. In music, it is the lever by means of which the curtain is raised on visions of beauty, on ennobling thoughts, on entrancing sounds of another charac ter than is to be found in any other connection. To imagination is also closely allied the desire and the power of creation. Music, from the moment the first note is conceived to every re production thereafter, is creation. Unfortunately, whether from the standpoint of a musician or from that of an enjoyer of musie. the personal quality of creation is not always al lowed its freedom. It is so simple to imitate, either in performance or in forming an opinion, especially in the question of music values, and that frailty Is responsible for much of the ordinary music that is to be found on all sides. The individual idea is al ways recognizable and commands re spect. even if one does not agree with it. It is true that one has the right to an individual opinion only after hav ing ascertained an accepted viewpoint, vet many never attempt to pass be- , vond the boundary of this first knowl edge. But if one would claim the title of artist or be a real force in aiding music to circulate in our midst, then must onr cultivate a free play of fan tasy and permit the ideas and senti ments that are thus born to be the cuiding light directing the accomplish ment of a purpose. True imagination, totally differing from a mere indulgence in dreams, is allied to the reasoning faculty and the will. The power of this trinity is boundless and the motivating element in progression. Resolved to its funda mentals. the study of music, the inter pretation of music and the develop ment of music is based on the use of the imagination. All the negative qualities that may seen great in work- ' ing with music disappear under the influence of the mind aglow with the visions ol what might be. A "divine discontent" is engendered that urges on to new attainments which carry the allure of a promised land. The entire color of life, thought and en deavor is established through the mental imagery, and art is completely ; dependent on its force and originality. The surest way to keep the imagina tion active in music is by reading. Not all of us are capable of noteworthy creation by our own powers, but these may be stimulated and directed. The lives of the composers, analytical studies of their works, are the first resource which should be supplement ed by a broadening of interest in other arts in particular. Poetry aids in lyric comprehension, prose and drama, in the emotional, the two ele ments constantly found in music in terpretation. Nor is this solely the privilege of the artist but is necessary for the music lover who welcomes the devel opment of music in a community. The civic tolerance of a musical program is not a question of dollars and cents but of the spiritual influence which any right-minded citizen will ac knowledge is obligatory if there is to be no deterioration. The proper use of the imagination in art and civic af fairs repays the world in beauty and lightens the burdens of this life's passage.

MUCH conjecture has been ex- i pressed regarding the pro posed Summer concerts at the Watergate by the Na tional Symphony Orchestra. It is understood that the Orchestra Association has faced a serious prob lem as regards these concerts because of the fact that their campaign for fynds did not yield sufficient money to cover the anticipated deficit on the Summer series of concerts. The board of directors of the Na tional Symphony Orchestra Associa tion held a meeting last Friday at which the matter was discussed from every angle, and a plan was proposed that holds promise of solving the problem and making the concerts possibe. It is anticipated that the re sults of Its efforts on this new plan will be known some time during the coming week, and definite announce ment regarding the concerts will then to made. The tentative plans call for a series of eight weeks of concerts, starting June 23. and having two concerts weekly—one on Thursday night and the other on Sunday night. Dr. Hans Kindler will act as gen eral musical director for the entire series, but will not conduct the whole series. Some of the guest conductors already tentatively engaged for the series are Antonio Brico. who made such a favorable impression with her women's symphony orchestra in New York last season: Rudolph Ganz. head of the Chicago Musical College and for several years conductor of the St. Louis Symphony (Mr. Ganz is also a noted concert pianist»: Sandor Harmati. conductor of the West Chester festivals, former conductor of the Omaha Symphony Orchestra, and a composer of note. Soloists will be presented at the concert and C. C Cappel. the man ager. announces that several very in- j teresting features that will lpnd them selves to the unusual setting at the Watergate will be included on the program. Dr Kindler has a new type of presentation for Summer concerts in mind that will make the program extremely wide in thrir appeal.

CHEW CHASE Thp National Park Service, making the location for the concerts at the Watergate near the Lincoln Memorial available, has already definite plans in hand for placing the site in readi ness for the concerts, once the de cision is reached to proceed.
