Michael Cooney sings at Ark

(Continued from Page S)
Detroit poeple make the cars/Miami
takes a vacation
We get those big potatoes
from Boise, Idaho
But what do they make in Washington?
What is it that they grow?"
While performing a number of West-
ern songs, Cooney stated, "Some
cowboy songs have antecedents as sail-
ing songs." Bury Me Now on the Lone
Prairie is one example of this folk
process. On the concertina, an "ances-
tor of the accordion," Cooney played a
number of actual sea songs. The rich,
soaring sound of the instrument seemed
ideally suited for this purpose.
Cooney, who grew up in Tucson, Ari-
zona, first became interested in music,
in high school; his first instrument was
a plastic ukelele. With a couple of frien-
ds, he formed a Kingston Trio type of
group. He soon picked up banjo, and
he's learned the other instruments he
plays over the years since then.
I always feel real'sorry'for the songs
that don't get s'ung," he gibed. "There's
so-many neat songs." For some years,
doney wrote a column for Sing Out,
nagazine. He recently stopped doing
tlit to allow him more time to read,

v -

think, and do what he seems to enjoy
doing the most - traveling around and
performing. Cooney ;has' a post office
box but no permanent address. He liter-
ally lives on the road.
Cooney's third set, which began shor-
tly after midnight, was a beautiful lulla-
by. The pace was even more relaxed
than in the previous sets, and the songs

by and large had a mellow, lilting
quality to them. Me and My Shadow
stands out in terms of its soft, peaceful
impact on the audience. On another
song, his concentina sounded like a
majestic church organ: It was a won-
derful, soothing way to unwind from the
musical heights to which Cooney had
taken the crowd before.

Maria Meirelles

(Continued from Page 5)
Two unusually short sonatas followed
intermission, Sonatas op. 49, nos. I and
2, in g and G. These sonatas represent a
return to classicism. Both were played
perfectly, with precise attacks and very
even tempi. Despite simplicity, these
sonatas are a test of dexterity, ones
which Meirelles passed.
Sonata op. 101 in A was the final piece
on the program. The pleasant Allegret-
to and the difficult Vivace were well-
performed. This piece is a fine example
of Beethoven's third period; with wide-
ly-spaced harmonics.
As an encore to this program,
Meirelles played a Liszt etude. She,
seemed especially to enjoy herself

during this number, as many in the
audience shook their heads in wonder at
the display of digital artistry.
A superb appendix to a well-spent
evening. Meirelles took three bows and
deserved every one of them.

very nice job complementing the so-
prano. He augmented her dynamics
a6d moods beautifully. However, he
projected himself too much into the,
spotlight by being overly obtrusive and
distractive at times.
Many believe her nickname Bubbles
refers to her effervescent personality,
which is very true. Actually, she was
given the name the day she was born
when she entered the world with an
enormous bubble of spit in her mouth.
Her bubbly presentation lead to and
instaht rapport with the audience. She
actually sang to the members of her
audience instead of at them. She rarely
looked "heavenward," as many operet-
tists do. The crowd was right with her
all the way.
Miss Sills rightfully received a stan-
ding ovation and a bouquet of red roses
from the audience.
She explained in, a raspy voice that
she studied with Miss Liebling, her only
voice teacher, for 35 years. As a brief
eulogy, Miss Sills said, "When I was ten
she gave me this little Portuguese folk_
Omaha, Nebraska, i %l the .fir .
national Log Rolling Championship
back on September 9, 1898. After a
frenzied-and moist-contest, the
champion was Tommy.Flemning of Eau
Claire, Wisconsin.

song. I close all my recitals with it."
The last verse goes:
Tell me why you bid me leave you,
There are tears in your eyes.
Tell me why you wish bur parting.
Is not my love worth more than sighs?



And with

that, Bubbles ended her

More than fifty percent of
the world is starving. Another
twenty percent, just plain
hungry. And yet, in the face of
starvation, they have hope.
Hope that the rains will return
to the African Plain. Hope that
the Asian rice crop will be bigger
this year. Hope that someone,
anyone, with anything to
offer will come to help them M
fight the battle for life.
Someone in the Peace
Corps. They'd like to k.
stand up for themselves,
these prisoners of fate,
but they're just too weak x
to stand up. But with
the Peace Corps a
flame begins to flicker.
They've seen others
like you before. Seen 4"
the changes you can
bring. Two thousand
wells on the parched earth
of Sahel. Seen how their
knowledge helped reduce
the grain losses. Who are
they? They're people
pretty much like you.

People with commitment and
skills who've assessed their
lives and decided there must
be more than just having a job.
They looked into themselves
and knew it was time for the
talk to end and the work to
begin. They're very special
people, these people. Totally
prepared to give
everything they've got.
And getting back even
more than they give.
That's the beauty of the
Peace Corps. The work
is hard and the pay is
lousy, and the progress
comes a drop at a time. But
the rewards are infinite.
Join the Peace Corps
and then take a good long
look in the mirror. You'll
never look the same to
yourself again.
The Peace Corps is alive
and well. Call toll free:
