Program At McIntosh Stu-dio Is One Of Series Of Mid-Winter Events
A program well suited to the tastes of a discriminating audi-ence of students, friends and other musicians, was heard at the Music Center, Hillside avenue, Rockville Centre, under sponsorship of the Edith McIntosh school of music. This was one of a series of mid-winter artist programs. The recent installation of a Hammond Electronic organ made possible the appearance of George Crook, organist. The organ was placed in the school for the occa-sion, through the courtesy of the Hammond Organ Studios of New York city. Miss Augustine Jaquil-lard, soprano, and Jeanne Bride-son, child violinist, were the other artists. Mr. Crook opened the program, with two movements of the Men-delssohn "Concerto No. 4." Miss Jaquillard followed with "Pre-lude" from the "Cycle of Life," and Rachmaninoff's "In the Si-lence of Night." Miss Brideson then played "Polonaise Brilliante" by Wieniawski and "Alt Wein" by Godowsky. Mr. Crook's second selection was the Bach "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor," after which Miss Jaquillard sang "The Last Hour," and "Take Joy Home." Following "Melody" (Gluck) and "Neapoli-' tan Song" (Persinger) by Miss Brideson, Mr. Crook closed the program with "Ronde. Francaise" by Boellmann. The three artists were generous with encores in response to en-, thusiastic applause from the audi-ence. Mr. Crook's playing of selec-tions that were exacting, both musically and technically, was considered scholarly. Miss Jaquil-lard pleased her audience both by her voice and interpretation and by her personality. The pupils of the school found much inspiration from the playing of Jeanne Brideson who is 13 years old. With her already ma-' ture attainments, and the finish and poise with which she played difficult music, she has given an. impetus to more serious study at the school. An informal reception and tea followed the program.
Second In Series Of Artist Concerts Will Be Held On February 14
The Edith McIntosh school of music Will present the second in the season's artist programs, Sunday afternoon, February 14, in the Music Center, Hillside ave-nue, Rockville. Guest artists will be George C. Crook, organist; Augustine Jaquil-lard, soprano; and Jeanne Bride-son, violinist. Mr. Crook's appearance is pos-sible because of the recent in-stallation of the Hammond organ in the studios. A pupil of Charles Galloway in St. Louis, he held a number of prominent positions in that city before coming to New York. He has studied with Dr. Tertius Noble, organist of St. Thomas Episcopal church on Fifth avenue. He is an associate of the American guild of Organists; is organist and director of music at the West Park Presbyterian church, New York city, besides playing in a nunnber of the better-known theatres in New York and Brooklyn. Miss Jaquillard has suing with many of the leading syimphony orchestras, including the Ccasnit-politan Opera company, Max Jacob's symphony, the Kalteraborn symphony, the Mendelssohn chub, and the Brooklyn Orchestral sm-ciety. Jeanne Brideson, now 13 years old, commenced her violin studies with her father when she was less than four years old. After her first public appearance at the age of five, she began lessons with Ralph Lewando, Pittsburgh music critic and teacher. When she was eight years old, she played a full-length recital, including the Men-delssohn concerto. She is said to play with the finesse and maturity of an adult. She is now a pupil of Louis Persinger.
