Miss Moore is a pupil of Thomas Ei-ans Greene. She is now rehearsing for her first theatrical season. It was Mr. Whitney who produced "The Chocolaate Soldier" in this country. The Friday Morning Music has a most interesting season prospect. This women's club has se cured the assembly hall of the Cos mos Club for its weekly morning meetings this year and many of the programs have already been outlined. Mrs. Eugene Byrnes, president of the Club, says it is to be their policy x make one program each month a constructively educational one. In. the furtherance of this plan, the field of music Is to be taken chronolog ically.

Both of these singers have been soloists in the great Bach Festival held each year at Betllehem, Pa, they are planning to give the Bach cantata that is written lor soprano and bass on this program.

The Motet Choral Society, under the direction of Otto Torney Sinlon, will reorganize .this season under the auspices of the War Camp Community Service. The last concert of the Motet Society was given In December, 1917. at the Belasco Theater, at which time they had the honor of singing before the President.

The school for song leaders and ac companists of the War Camp Commun ity Service, under the direction of Hol lis Edison Davenny, will hold Its or ganization meeting on the evening of September 16th. This school is conducted without a fee from the members, the only re quisite being a willingness to serve as song leader or accompanist in the many civic events that the W. C. C. S. sustains in its community service. Lieutenant Dnvenny says that the demand for such service is increasing steadily. He therefore desires to en list the co-operation of experienced musicians of the city who may be willing to devote, perhaps, but one evening a week to this community work; as well as the musically inter ested who will need the tuition of .he class for future song leaders?S He would like to "have possible ap plicants register at the Community Music Headquarters at 1408 Penna. avenue northwest so that permanent assignments may be made. Community Opera Plans To Open Second Season In Autumn With "'Faust" Through an error In our typesetting department the address of the Wash ington Conservatory of Music was In advertently given as at T108 New Hampshire avenue. The correct ad dress is 1408 Kcw Hampshire avenue. adjoining Dupont Circle, where the summer rchool of the conservatory has just finished a very successful season.

This will be the eighth season of this choral joclety.

The Community Opera-of Washing ton will open its second season with a presentation of Gounod's beautiful opera of "Faust." to be given early in the uutumn. As originally organized, the development of this opera, "move ment for Washington will be sponsor- ea Dy me War Camp Community Ser vice. Edouard Albion, director of the Community Opera of Washington, has Just returned from his summer In Canada with full plans for the com ing season, when it Is Intended to present six of the standard grand operas. The design of this enterprise Is to put the best In music into the actual music experience of the people, and to develop on home soil the talent for opera, that would otherwise be lost for lack of opportunity. It is the same principle upon which the smaller opera houses of Europe have been run. . Tho Community Opera of Washington is "out of the community" u is true, but, as Mr. Albion points out. Its development Is In the hands of the musicians who are at hand, and these musicians are pro fessionals, albeit without experience inopera. They have.too, been gather ed here from all over the country, so in that way are representative of music in America. "The value of the best In music, music as high art in the broad field of the opera, is the only foundation upon which this endeavor can be nrmlv built into the music life of the nation," says Edouard Albion. "Formerly, an American student has had to spend a long apprenticeship In Europe before he was fitted to enter the professional opera world In competition with for eign artists. "I found that outside of Washing ton much emphasis has been placed upon the fact that 'Opera had become a community expression, and a suc cessful enterprise as well. It will serve, not alone for the development of opera and a taste for opera in the National Capital, but it is a model to which other communities are looking. 'The success of Washington's first season of Community Opera has made a place for it in the music life of the entire United States. It Is not a mere amateur venture. It Is to the estab lishment of that broad art of the opera in the experience, and in the hearts of the American people, that the enterprise is directed. "Opera as a cosmopolitan art, opera as it should be' studied and under stood, is what the Community Opera of Washington alms to cultivate." With the autumn season comes the announcement of the organization of another opera company the People's National Opera Sbciety for the pro duction of lighter operas, including a numbqr of the most succcessful and popular productions the comic opera S- Shaw's celebrated comedy, "Arms and" the Man." These operas are to be produced on a business basis, and presented for one week each, at one of the regular theaters. A gala production, of "Pinafore" is scheduled for the week of the visit oi the Prince of Wales in the National Capital. And It is designed to ter minate the series with a great open- air production of Verdi's grand opera.

This will take place at Crandall's Knickerbocker Theater on the afternoon of October 2. It will be Washington's first effort at "uptown" concerts. But not until November will the concerts be in full swing. The end of October, Tuesday , October 28 brings Geraldine Jarrar as the first artist of the Philharmoic course pre sented by Mrs. Wilson-Greene. A new course of concerts, to be given in the evening, Is announced by Miss Laura Harlan. These will be six "Thursday Evening Musicals," presenting twelve artists, with two at each concert. It will prove among other things whether Washington really wants evening concerts. Particular interest will center, both socially and musically. In the appear ance of Ralph Leopold, pianist. For Mr. Leopold is the brother of the wifo of the, Secretary of War, Mrs. Newton D. Baker. This young artist Is little known in this country. He has been assistant to the celebrated Russian teacher, lime. Stepanoff, and has spent most of his professional life abroad.

RABAUD AND NrONTEUX ARE DIFFERENT TYPES The longevity of phonograph rec ords may be doubled if proper care be exercised In their use. When we have the privilege of listening to the great artists through the medium of the record, we should see to it that the reproduction is perfect, as far aa our care of the machine and record may make .it. Nothing can be so ir ritating as to liqten to an otherwise artistic performance on a rccord- whlch produces a grating, grinding sound. Too many people blatrfe th machine in an . instance like this, when the fault lies. In lack of care for their records, assuming, of course, that their machine is cared for and in order. Before using a record Jt is well to ex3h.ine it carefully. Iff there be any fault, it may be that the record is badly worn, the; deep grooving usually being the cause of the gritty sound produced. If the following advice Is applied, it should have the effect of making your ma chine a real musical' Instrument. First, see to it that tho turn-table of your phonograph is revolving at the correct number of revolutions per minute, so as to secure the proper tempo at which certain compositions should be placed. Second, always clean off your rec ord before playing. Use clean, soft cheese-cloth for this purpose with a very little oil on it not enough to grease the record, but just enough to lift the dust and lint. Third, when using steel needles, change each time after playing. When Using jeweled needles, wipe the dust off each needle every time. Fourth, never let a record rub against a hard surface. When it is not resting on the baize surface of the turn-table, it should be replaced in a stiff cardboard envelope or rec ord album. Strict observation of the foregoing rules will double the life of all rec ords while securing 100 per cent of pleasure to their happy possessor. It has been estimated that a child's musical education consists of 20 per j cent teacher, 60 per cent mother and 20 per cent just plain child. The mother holds the controlling major it'. Lucky the child where the mother exercises he majority to the best advantage.
