N v ' ept 20 Srnor eido H r' ' aK'i' ulture and coloniza- t w r( en from the .ib net of trif It has recentlv heen said that one of the reasons Washington has been so long an unrecognized producing center for musical ability lies in the tact that Washington musicians do not recognize themselves The prophet who was without honor in his own country had it all over the singer or Instrumental istbecause there never was enough steady jobbing in the prophet busi ness to make it profitable by itself. while the musician jsuallv has only music as a means to a living, and mu sic has never been carried very far as a side line It is too big. Every little while some big concert singer or performer who has gained note in the various recognized centers comes to Washington to be recognized with sur prises as one of our own people. A case in point is Agnes Whelan. This young woman has been working hard for sev eral j ears past to take a very tine quality of natural voice through the various processes needed to make it a finished instrument for the interpreta tion of the masterpieces ot melody. By pursuing the kind of a course of tud that rounds natural ability into the highest forms of art. under Mrs Anne L. Goodhue. Miss "Whelan has accom plished a great deal, but it was not until last week when it was announced that this voting woman had ben se lected to sing the part of Josephine in a festival production of Gilbert & Sullivan's "Pinafore" at Gettysburg. Pa., that local musicians really under stood just how great her claims were to fame. Of course. Miss Whelan has been singing here tor several years, and she was regarded as having a very tine voice. But it took the outside recogni tion of her ability to bring home to Washington the real excellence of the singer s attainments. MUs AVhelan goes to Gettysburg tomorrow, and it is un derstood that the other members of the cast selected are among the very best dingers in Pennsylvania, which only emphasizes what we start-ed out to say.
