WEDNESDAY CLUB IN
A GENERAL CONCERT
Christmas Numbers Comprise Pro
gram ; Appreciation of
The Wednesday Club will give one
of its attractive general concerts on
Thursday evening, December 17, in
Fahneatock Hall, at 8.15 o'clock.
The program will be given by the
club members and will consist of selec
tions appropriate to the Christmas
Each member may bring a guest to
the concert. This is an innovation, as
heretofore only to the closing concert
of the season were guests invited.
Fino Working Musicale
The Wednesday Club never had a
more out-of-the-ordinary and interest
ing program than the one given at its
recent working musicale. The subject
for the morning was "Music of the
North American Indian" and its in
fluence, upon American composers.
The aboriginal songs in their native
simplicity have been transcribed by
Natalie Curtis, Cadman and Troyer,
with harmonized piano accompani
ments that furnish the necessary back
ground of sound, at times imttating
the roll of the drums, the plaintive
notes of the lover's flute, the piercing
call of the eagle-bone whistle and the
rattle used by the "medicine man."
The Indian's whole life is epitomized
in his songs and dances. Work, play
and ceremony, each has Its own vocal
and instrumental expression. Loomis
in his "Lyrics of the Red Men" has
woven Into one of these compositions
for the piano the melody which is
sung when the calumet, the peace
pipe, is dedicated, the pipe which,
when offered and smoked, seals the
bond of friendship. In another Is
heard the prayer to Wakonda, the
thunder god. Then there is the tune
which is sung in derision of the chat
tering squaw. Its inharmonious con
secutive fourths and fifths and its
jumble of melodies sung by different
voices regardless of time and unison
of pitch typifies vividly the garrulous
The Tyrolese yodel has a mate in
the motion songs of the Indian maiden
as she grinds the corn for her tribe.
The papooses of the Zuni tribe are
sung to sleep with the tenderest lul
laby. while in marked contrast Is the
tragic music of the "Ghost Dance."
This has been arranged for violin by-
Carlos Troyer and it portrays in mu
sical color the crouching dance of the
naked painted savage, round and in
and out among the flaming bonfires,
while he endeavors to call the spirit
of his beloved back to earth to join
him in this commemorative fire dance.
The day has its "Sunrise Call." when
every man. woman and child of a
Pueblo village hastens to a nearby
plateau and with uplifted hands greets
and thanks the life-giving Mother.
The great warriors' deeds are re
membered in song and story and the
greatest of them all has been immor
talized by Arthur Farwell in "Ichl
busshi." Ichibusshi, he who was slow
to answer the war drum, but whose
prowess ln battle was talked of by
children of the fourth and fifth gen
No program could be complete with
out Cadman's exquisite Indian .songs;
the sons of the captive maid homesick
for 'the land of the sky-blue water;"
"Far Off I Hear a Lover's Flute;"
"The White Dawn is Stealing," and
"The Moon Drops Low," that noble
sorrow for the passing of the red
