Community in Washington county to attempt this clinic the purpose of which is to test pre school children Between three and five for slight and some not so slight defects of the Eye. It is important that the parents realize that this is not an Eye a examination a miss Patterson said. It is a simple test which is Given by local volunteers to try and determine if the child has any Eye deficiency. The volunteers Are dedicated to the Eye saving idea and will be thorough in their part of the tests. If there seems to be trouble with a child a Eye parents will be asked to return for a second test two weeks later to repeat the process according to the speaker because a child can have bad Days be Cross or uncooperative one Day and be quite the opposite on another Day.

The most recent was sunday night s concert of piano trios piano violin cello by Beethoven Brahms and models Sohn As performed by the Boston Trio. Roger Shermont violinist and John Sant ambrogio cellist Are members of the Boston symphony orchestra which makes its Home in Tanglewood each summer and there was an occasional suspicion that both had probably performed in the afternoon then raced North to meet their Manchester commitment. The third member of the Trio was Phyllis Moss a pianist of proficiency who has done Solo work with various orchestras. The trios Choice of program was frankly romantic and familiar to chamber music lovers. Each of the trios had its own Lush kind of Beauty though hearing them in a Row had a slightly lulling effect on the senses. Coupled with that was a sense of Rush. The musicians played just a few phrases before All the audience had taken their seats in the darkened shed and started the Brahms Trio in c major immediately on the heels of Beethoven a in b Flat major with scarcely a moments time out to catch ones breath. And Rush or fatigue might have accounted for a bad slip up in the first movement of the Mendelssohn when the violin fell out of phase and find a Subtle Way Back into the mesh of the three voices. But the performers did make their instruments sing out rather boldly for the most part letting the audience revel in the Richness of the melodic lines and the harmonic modulations that Are the Delight if no longer the Surprise of much 19th Century music. It was a comfortable kind of concert Well suited to a sunday night that was restlessly trying to blow up a storm. If there was disappointment on my part and there was some it was with the fact that these three instrumentalists could have done More if they had been More willing to listen to each other As they played More willing to query and respond with musical inflection and feeling. There were too Many mechanical moments mixed in with others of More considered shading even if the music itself carried the evening. The Toubman Trio from Boston which played at the Art Center several weeks ago on a sunday afternoon invested its performance with an unmistakable affection and sense of ensemble even if the music they performed was less readily accessible. Elinor Preble flautist Raymond Toubman oboist and Olivia Toubman cellist played works by Telemann Foeillet and Haydn All of them sprately though highly structured compositions along with works by a composer unknown to me Neubaur who was Mozart a contemporary and two Lovely pieces for unaccompanied flute by Debussy and Honegger. Actually theirs was a More interesting program because of its the Pownal an informational meeting to outline proper procedures for town clerks and boards of civil authority in legislative District 32 has been set for thursday at Vera Langlais a 823-7716 8 . In the Readsboro school. The newly formed District is composed of Pownal Wilmington Whitingham Readsboro Stamford Dover and Searsburg. According to Law mrs. Rachel Mason Pownal town clerk automatically becomes District clerk As Pownal had the largest number of Legal voters at the last presidential election Over 800. It is expected that legislators from the seven towns will be present to clarify any issues.

Variety and its invitation to the audience to share in music written by some lesser known composers. An informative aspect was thus added to the sheer pleasure of the afternoon. Coming to the Center next sunday evening at 8 30 is the Zim Bler sinfonietta made up of 12 string players from the Boston symphony orchestra along with Sherman Walt bassoonist. They will perform chamber works by Vivaldi Corelli Handel Mozart Samuel Barber and Paul Hindemith. The Chance to hear the chamber music repertory is most available to us in the summer and chamber music deserves an audience because of the intimacy with which it reaches out to the receptive listener. To hear symphonic or choral music is quite a different experience something Akin to the difference Between trying to swim in Salt water surf or in the still clearness of a fresh water Lake. And Only Here do i get to what is basically bothering me the fact that there has not been enough audience for the Good chamber music which the Art Center has presented this summer and in Summers past. It would seem that sunday night is a better time than sunday afternoon but the problem is deeper than one of timing. Is there some Way Itiat the Center with the support of the town can incorporate some kind of music instruction or continuing musical Endeavor that will result in concerts of endemic interest to the people who live in the area the Center has done this with some fruitful results in the areas of visual arts and Ballet but the continued importation of professional musicians for one night stands is costly too sporadic and evidently not the Way in which to build an audience for one of the most meaningful forms in our musical heritage.
