Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - February 3, 1966, Bennington, Vermont Cambridge girl scouting a Quot a a Quot i Quot Bennington Banner thursday february 3, 19fifi-9 the pow a is wins boost from volunteers second of Bach concerts superlative Quot at St. Peters by Lisa Tate Cambridge . A senior and Cadette girl scouts entertained at a reorganization meeting for girl scouting at Cambridge Central school Jan. 27. Miss Mary Lou Ackley and miss Janet Gray senior scouts who attended the senior girl scout Roundup in Farragut Idaho for two weeks last summer spoke briefly of their experiences there. Suzanne Rouse accompanied a group of Cadette girl scouts singing girl scout songs with her guitar. Others attending the meeting were mrs. William buckle first vice president of the Council miss Louise Roushey executive director and mrs. . Malcolm Tasker Field advisor who explained needs of the area. The remainder of the meeting was devoted to exploring resources of the Community to determine of needed help is available to maintain girl scouting for Cambridge girls As in the past. Cambridge which had eight troops last year has none this year. Adult leadership is needed at All Levels of the program and in Many capacities the leaders reported. As a result of the meeting plans were made to begin girl scout and Brownie meetings the second week in february. Enough adults have volunteered to make at least three Brownie troops two Junior and one Cadette troop possible with the probability of one or two More being organized also. A second organization and orientation meeting was held to Day at the presbyterian Church. Brownie leaders met with miss Roushey and mrs. Tasker for informal training. Junior and Cadette leaders will meet at 8 . For the same purpose. Local women Active in girl scouting and assisting in these organizational meetings Are mrs. Priscilla Bayer mrs. Hay Ludwick mrs. Elizabeth Ehrenfreund and mrs. Genevieve Leone. Words do Little Justice to Art and artistry especially words in the superlative which Many of us Are guilty of banding about where they do not belong. Though tempted i propose to refrain from superlatives about the Art and artistry in evidence at wednesday nights concert at St. Peters Church. Instead i want to concentrate on Liat i consider to be the meaning and importance of that concert. A of Bach devoted his life to music and last nights concert second in a series of three was devoted exclusively to his creations. If his music fails or has failed to move some hearers that is perhaps due to a heavy legacy of dry and Brittle interpretation. This legacy has been significantly challenged by certain performing artists of this Century who Are Able to grasp and play and project the feeling that Bach invested in his works a unwittingly perhaps As a Genius does. His music when performed As it was last night has that startling unitary Quality where form cannot be divorced from substance where the two Are not merely inextricably mixed but Are essentially one. A of Orre a Perne l plays Bach in this Way. Hers is not a romantic interpretation in the usual sense of the word but rather a plumbing of Baches work for the Depths of expression it embodies in its Structure. She too has devoted her life to music not just to technical Mastery of the violin essential but to understanding music to the Point of being Able to convey to others the deep shades of meaning she finds in it a As in her playing last night of a crowning Chaconne during the course of which her Bow lashed caressed rocked then Sang on the strings of her instrument. Her performance of the second sonata for Solo violin and the second suite Partite for violin had a Unity that enveloped the audience. She has not Only committed the intricacies of a million notes to her memory but she has made the music she plays a part of her the better to re create it in performance for us. Such Unity combined with acoustics that embrace the inner space of the Church made for As nearly pure and total a musical sensation As i have Ever had the Chance to experience. I believe that in their own Way s everyone at last night s concert was experiencing some of the same feeling. A of i do not mean to ignore the efforts of Tina Calabro and Reinhoud Van Der Linde whose singing and Organ playing were Well done essential to the sense of the program and further revealing of Baches Genius. Both were responsible for some Lovely moments of music their expression under better control than it seemed to be in the first concert generally surer and More accurate. Their Only real actor a John Parker appears As Orestes in Goethe a poetic tragedy a iphigenia in Tauris a to be presented by the Adams memorial theatre saturday.
