Miss Alice Marie Decevee Pre
sented by Wednesday Club
Is JUeartily Greeted
"V eni, vidi, vlci!" The classic ut
terance of Julius Caesar might well
be repeated by Miss Alice Marie De
cevee this afternoon for truly, like
the famous old Roman, she came,
she saw, and she conquered. The oc
casion was the Wednesday Club's
closing concert of the season in Fah
nestock when the gifted young
planiste was presented in N lier first
public recital. And, although she is
a very young woman, it was the gen
eral consensus of opinion that she
was the brightest star in the stellar
firmament of the Wednesday Club
last night.
"Genius never reproduces," runs
the old adage. Miss DeceVee most
assuredly refutes litis saying for, its
the daughter of Prof. Edwin J. De
eeyce. the famous composer and mu
sician. and of Mrs. Anna Patterson
Decevee, soloist and director of the
'Lion Lutheran Church choir, she is a
rarely gifted player, who leads one
from the work-aday world into tlje
higher realms of happiness. Beauti
ful tone and an exquisitd delicacy
of touch were appreciated by those
present, many of whom, were not,
technically speaking, musicians, but
who love music for music's sake. And
for those who know their arpeggios
and fiats and sharps and quarter
notes, there was ample room for en
joyment, too, because Miss Decevee,
as a local musician fitly and slangily
expressed It, "caught them coming
anil going."
Chopin and Liszt, as usual, held
the place of honor on the pianiste's
program. She opened with the Mo
zart "Fantasia in D Minor" which
suddenly subdued the bustling audi
ence beauty; and played as
a following nunftber, the Bach-Saint
aens "Gavotte in E," a rippling
sprightly composition which evoked
rounds of applause and a huge bas
ket of flowers from her admirers.
Mrs. Arthur H. Hull, a popular
Harrisburg soprano, and pupil of
Horatio Connell, sang in charming
style, two beautiful songs by London
Ronald, "Away on the Hill There
Runs a Stream," and "A Little Wind
ing Road," following with the weird
".Song of India," and the Hummel
There was general approbation
when Miss Hecevee returned to the
stage to play the Chopin-*Liszt "The
Maiden's Wish," the Chopin "Ro
manze," from his Concerto in E Mi
nor," and the same, composer's mag
nificent "Prelude in B Minor." Three
Brahms songs, "In Summer Fields,"
"Serenade," and "Treachery," were
sung with grace and exquisite sweet
ness by Miss Belle Middaugh, con
tralto. Mrs. Roy G. Cox, who holds
a high place in the hearts of mu
sicians of the city, sang "Je dis que
rien ne mepouvante" from Carmen,
with intense dramatic feeling, com
bining charming lyric qualities which
won for her spontaneous and unani
mous approval.
Rounds of Applnuse .
Miss Decevee made her last appear
ance of the evening in "Heaven
Absolve My Soul," (Lassen-Llszt),
ar.d the "Twelfth Hungarian Rhapso
dy" by Liszt. She is fortunate enough
to have had the instruction and
guidance of Barber and llutcheson,
eminent concert pianists who studied
under Stavenhagen, a pupil ,of the
the great Liszt, himself. With this
valuable training in addition to that
of her parents, she was able to play
the familiar closing number with
more strength and power than is
usual in the performance of this
composition. A delightful feature
was the introduction of interpola
tions which do not appear in the
printed scyre and which were given
by the greatest pianist of all time
to his pupil, Stavenhagen, who. in
turn passed them to William Barber,
Miss Decevee's master at Ossining, N.
Y. In response to repeated calls Miss
Decevee played "Chant d'Amour," by
The final section of the program
was by the Wednesday Club chorus
singing Bawden's cantata, "The Iliv
er of Stars." a song-narrative of In
dian origin, telling of Niagara. Mrs.
Wilbur F. Harris, skilfully directed
the chorus. Mrs. Roy G. Cox was so
loist and Miss Mabel Wittenmyer at
the piano played with sympathy and
It might be said In closing that the
audience was remarkably large at
last night's concert. Harrisburg likes
the Wednesday Club. Harrisburg
also likes to hear her own excellent
musicians. And ample evidence of
this was given to any who might de
sire to seek, if they had glimpsed
Fahnestock Hall filled to the very
ceiling, with enthusiasts. The con
cert marked the closing of a musical
season, but it also marked the open
ing of bigger and better things for
the local organization. Success to
those effoias! #
