FRIDAY; MAY 27, 1921. Matinee Music Club. The Matinee Music Club held the last meeting of the season Saturday afternoon, with Miss Lola Harper at the home of her aunt, Mrs. Cordie Garth, ou Ury street. The club cal endar of the year has been filled with red-letter days, but none more en couraging than the final meeting, for - at this time the members of the club "were able to make brief recapitula tion of the year's activity with a sat isfying degree of pride over results attained. They thought of the im prcssive research work that has been made; of the attention given 'to America's music' and to her inn sician3, including the Colonists, the Innovators, and the Academics; of the branching out into musical cir cles of other nations Russia, Swe den, Germany, France; the study of the orchestra, of the oratorio, the tmera. and other musical forms: also of the delightful piano, voice and vi olin execution in nrnaram discourse andwith such a review, each membei felt the Joy of glorious achievement the legitimate after-effect of work well done. The lesson study of the afternoon led by Miss Vivian Woodrow, was a subject very dear to the hearts of all present: "Edward MacDowell, the Man and His Work." Born an Amer lean, his directness of expression, his outlook upon life, all American, of him may it be said that he came nearer being the founder of a nation ' al BChool than has any native com poser coming after. A man of com pelling personality, a weaver of dreams, and by way of further de scription, a poet, composer, and myS' tic in one. To the lover of natilre MacDowell . makes a sympathetic appeal. He paints in wonderful tone the rare beauty of- the "Water Lily," and "Wild Rose," while in his musical realization of Tennyson's "The Ea gle," the general exaltation and ma Jestic splendor of the king bird of the forest is felt. May the spirit of Mac Dewell brood over the sons and daughters of America and be an in visible agent in drawing them closer to the shrine of musical art. PROGRAMME.
