Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta A review Chorus conductor skilful singer too Budget backtracking divides city council By PAT ORCHARD The Lethbridge Symphony conducted by Walter Goerzen and accompanied by Ruth gave its final concert of the season at the Yates Memorial Centre Monday evening to a crowd of about two hundred persons. The program began with a concert version of selections from Gounod's opera Faust. The chorus sang with a wide dynamic from a practically inaudible pianissimo to a full-blown fortissimo. The women tended to be a little tremulous in the quiet but for the most part their tone was unfailingly warm and their diction excellent. the atmosphere conveyed was one of artificiality. In order that vocal chunks from an opera such as Faust be elevated to the realm of the one needs a type of theatrical performance which unfortunately these singers are not yet capable of producing. Mr. and Mrs. Kaufmann went on to Sing a duet from Verdi's opera ballo in The Kaufmanns both have beautiful which they used with sensitivity and intelligence. I did feel that Mr. Kaufmann had a tendency to and did not establish character as clearly as his wife did. But his ability to light up the words with the implied facial expressions did much to enhance the performance. The duet was most enjoyable. The highlight of the evening was Mr. Goerzen's tender and pliant rendering of die feme by Beethoven. Our conductor has already distinguished himself in Lethbridge as a both in oratorio and in opera. Needless to we welcomed the opportunity of hearing him perform some Lieder Mr. Goerzen was in excellent voice and' managed to handle very skilfully the related and developing tempos of the six poems so exquisitely knit into one by Beethoven. Mrs. Goerzen's accompaniments were well judged and sympathetic throughout. The second half of the program began with a woodwind quintet comprised of Walter Falk Sandra Weaver Brian Thorlacius Lorraine Boughen and Tom Last They performed two Voxman Koepke's and the Rondo from Beethoven's Quintet in E flat. Although Mr. Voxman is obviously a vigorous composer of other men's his compositions were intelligent -and deft. The players blended happily and apart from some rough spots in the their distinctive woody timbre was delightful. I do hope this quintet will be encouraged to perform again. The sparkle of Lehar's magical entertainment was glowingly caught by Mr. and Mrs. as they went on to sing solos from 'Shoen ist die of and The latter performance was accompanied by Mr. Blech The evening concluded with choruses from Die Fledermaus. The singers did not conjure up the atmosphere of Strauss's comic yet one could not fail to be charmed by the performance. the latter three desert never walk and Mendelssohn's praise of were the usual makeweights for the miscellaneous recitals from which Lethbridge has suffered for so long. Mr. Goerzen is to be congratulated for his enterprising with its variegated pattern of musical entertainment. Deputy Mayor Vaughan Hembroff accused some of his fellow city council members Monday of lacking the guts to stick by earlier council budget decisions. He made his charge as council deliberated on a request by the Lethbridge Society fbr Meals on Wheels for reconsideration of a council decision which resulted in its budget being chopped from to voted against cutting the preventive social services the deputy mayor once having done it becomes established council principle and we should live with agree that Meals on Wheels is one of the finest organizations in the but I'd rather work for it myself than go against our Odds against LCC using Sportsplex Hope for the Lethbridge Community College's use of the Sportsplex facility has almost dwindled but LCC's board chairman is still convinced there is a slight possibility co operative use can be accomplished.

Park Royal project suffers cut Park Royal's loss turned out Monday to be Glacier Drive's gain. Bob community services told council Monday that if ordered to put the Park Royal green strip program back into this year's he would have to cut a similar project on Glacier Drive. The decision to put off the Park Royal project at a cost of and go ahead with the Glacier Drive project at was made because the dust problem there seems he said. Council earlier heard from a group of Park Royal residents who complained bitterly about the postponing of their which they said had already been deferred from the 1973 budget and had then been promised them for this year by council last fall. The area in said the residents' Ronald is a rapidly deteriorating eyesore becoming an excellent .breeding ground for weeds and also developing into a secondary highway with access to the nearby apartments. At times it forms a quagmire and during dry a dust bowl. He asked why the project was being cut in a completed subdivision when so much more money is being spent on landscaping in West Lethbridge where there are as yet few houses and taxpayers. Recalling that council did make a promise to the residents last Deputy Mayor Vaughan Hembroff moved that the Park Royal project be reinstated and the cut be made elsewhere. It was then that Mr. Bartlett revealed that the only place the cut could come from was the Glacier Drive project. During last month's council council had ordered him to trim from his department's capital expenditures budget for this year This couldn't be done by chopping a few hundred dollars here and Mr. Bartlett said Monday. Mr. Bartlett also pointed out that his department's budget for East Lethbridge this year was actually lower than in 1973 even before council ordered a cut. right to the he said And he reminded council members they had also been petitioned last year by Glacier Drive residents for landscaping their median. But Deputy Mayor Hembroff he still felt Park Royal was more deserving of the project simply because it has been around for 10 years while the Glacier Drive area is only about four to five years old. His went down to defeat with Aldermen Vera Ed Bill Kergan and Steve Kotch opposed. Aid. Cam who lives in Park didn't vote.
