Thrff artists, heard to exceptional advantage in a program delightful in its tarifty, presented the first concert of the annua J May music festival at the Oliver theater Tuesday evening. An audience warmly enthusiastic if only fairly large in numbers greeted the musicians. The opening augurs well for the future concerts of the festival. Mile. Jenny I)u Kau, French color atura soprano, whose singing" with the Chicago Grand Opera company was one of the features of the past sea son, was tho stellar attraction at the opening concert. Frank Kcndrie, violinist, late of Boston, hut recently engaged to take the directorship of the department at the South Bend conservatory, succeeding Hal Van Aiken; and Marie, I,udwig. harpist, proved very able assistants in the pre sentation of the program. When it is said that Mile. Du Fau is French it follows without further comment perhaps, that she is petite and decidedly brunette. These things are mentioned because they enter not a little into the impression received from her ringing. Being an opera singer, it is perhaps natural that Mil. Du Fau should appear rather "stu 1 ied" in her "presence." However, in the "life" which characterizes her presentations of even the simplest songs (from a technical standpoint), lies not a little of the singer's charm. Du Fan has a wonderfully sweet and surprisingly powerful voice. She is capable of a large satisfying tone, which belles her petite stature. This tone, however, was held in reserve and controlled by a superbly tinished technic. Her opening number, an Aria from the Barber of Seville, was among the most elaborate of her se lections, revealing the extent of her technical mastery. The group of songs which she pre sented us her second number was en thusiastically received, the applause bringing Mile. Du Fau back for an encore. The Polonaise from "Mignon" was another of the most popular num bers she presented, some of the pop ularity being due, doubtless to the marked "swing" of the piece and to the fact that it is fairly familiar. As one of her encore numbers the singer gave that classic, "The Lait Rose of Summer," Imparting a new charm to the familiar melody. The audience indicated its approval by pronounced applause the Instant the accompaniment began, tho applause intended, unconsciously, perhaps, to let tho .singer know that her hearers were, perfectly familiar with what was coming. Mr. Kcndrie's art showed to good advantage In the first number he pre sented, "Prelude du Deluge." by aint Saens. Tho violinist's playing is char acterized by a remarkable smoothness and sweetness. His tone is pure and liquid, "bringing out all the beauty of the majestic, almost solemn, measure of the. prelude. This characteristic was also evidenced In the Air for G string by Bach. The Caprico Yennios by Kriesler, was as light and delicate as Its name, rendered with a peculiar ly facile technic. Among Kendrie's numbers there was none which re quired so-called "pyrotechnics." His playing was quietly dignified, but none tho less artltic for that. Miss Ludwig pleased immensely with her harp selections. She handled the instrument with an arstic finish par tic rly satisfying and which served to ig out in great measure the bea.iies which lie in the harp. The rarity of tho instrument added, no doubc, to the appreciation, generous ly Indicated by applause which brought the player hack for repeated encores. Two of the most pretentious num bers were Am Springbrunner, by Za bel and the Cheshire Valse Caprice. In the I,rarpe Eollenne by Godefroid, the peculiar sweetness of tho instru ment was dominant. Miss Ludwig's playing gave evidence of her training under Enrico Tramonti. solo harpist of the Chicago Symphony orchestra, acknowleged one of the foremost harpists of the world. She presented a number composed by herself widen, drew rreneroTis response. Miss Valeria Bon Durant, the young South Bend pianist, played accompan iments for Mile. Du Fau and Mr. Kcndrie with rare sympathy, subduing and fusing tho "background" with the solo in artistic manner. The second program of the festival will be given this evening at the Oliver when the festival choir of 100 voices directed by Milton B. Grilfith will be a feature. The following soloists will rppear: Frances Ingram, contralto: Helen Axe Brown, soprano; Theodore Harrison, baritone. Max Mirandl will accompany. Indigestion? Can't I3at? No Appetite?
