Mary Gwin To Play
Palm Sunday will be commemo-
rated by the Methodist Senior Choir
with the performance of Felix Men-.
delssohn-Bartholdy's "Elijah," an or-
atorio in two parts, at 8 p.m. Sunday
in the Methodist Church.
Directed by Hardin Van Deursen,
the Senior Choir of the church will
take part, accompanied by Mary Por-
ter Gwin at the organ.
Bonnie Ruth Van Deursen, who
has sung the solo part before with
the Chicago Symphony Orchestra,
will sing soprano. Contralto soloist
will be Beatrice Brody Larsen, an or-
atorio artist who sang in the "Mes-
siah" here a number of years ago.
Other smaller soprano parts will be
taken by Beatrice Nesbitt Ruthven.
Avery Crew, who will be tenor,
has been a soloist with the Ford Sun-
day Evening Chorus and the Detroit
Symphony. Baritone Mark Bills is a
teaching fellow in voice at the Uni-
versity and also. Director of Music
at the First Presbyterian Church
First performed at the Birming-
ham (England) Festival, August 26,
1846, "Elijah" has taken a place in
the literature of the oratorio next to
the greatest works of Handel and
Bach. Several years were devoted to
the composition of this work which,
expressing the growing feeling for
dramatism, was written by a man
who neither cared nor sought success
in the opera.
The performance will be open to
the public free of charge, and a small
silver offering will be taken.
